Glee­ful lineup for Christ­mas in Park

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS - By JESS ETHERIDGE

Christ­mas glee is com­ing to town.

Rebecca McFadzien will per­form with the Auck­land Univer­sity Glee Club at Coca-Cola Christ­mas in the Park on De­cem­ber 14.

The event is in its 20th year and is partly spon­sored by Sub­ur­ban News­pa­pers, pub­lisher of the Auck­land City Har­bour News.

Rebecca says the glee club and Christ­mas in the Park are the per­fect com­bi­na­tion as both bring peo­ple from all walks of life to­gether.

Mu­sic crosses lan­guages and uni­fies com­mu­ni­ties, the 22-year-old says.

More than 80 peo­ple per­form with the glee club but just seven will per­form a se­cret set list on the 14th.

The group is known for its pop song mash-ups, such as Grease’s Sum­mer Lovin’ with What Makes You Beau­ti­ful by boy­band One Di­rec­tion.

Glee has changed the ac­tress’ life, she says, hav­ing met both her best friend and boyfriend through the club.

Ev­ery­one in glee can be them­selves and cel­e­brate their love for mu­sic, she says.

The group has per­formed at The Civic Theatre but Christ­mas in the Park will be its largest au­di­ence to date, Rebecca says.
