Darien youngster to solo with children's choir

Soloist Caroline Lui, of Darien, will perform Saturday, Feb. 1, at 7 p.m., when the Fairfield County Children's Choir salutes Broadway.

The choir, under the director of Jon Noyes, will present "Spotlight: Broadway!" -- its 19th annual Broadway-themed concert -- at the Klein Memorial Auditorium, 910 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport.

Many of Connecticut's best student soloists will step into the spotlight when the FCCC raises the curtain on a selection of Broadway tunes. The group of 300 singers will present favorites from the hit musicals "The Lion King," "Godspell," "The Sound of Music" and "The Secret Garden."

The FCCC orchestra will join the children on stage. Noyes, Lisa Bettke, Kevin Cotellese and Ashley Zadravecz will conduct.

In addition, a silent auction to benefit the choir will be conducted before the concert and during intermission. Donated auction items up for bid will include gourmet gift baskets, music lessons, jewelry and autographed children's books. Bidding begins at 5:30 p.m.
