Contemporary rock and pop music comes to the Mandell Theater on
Tuesday, November 29th for a 7:30 PM concert featuring Drexel’s Fusion
Band & Rock Ensemble. The two ensembles will perform such hits as
Stevie Wonder’s 1976, “I Wish,” popularized again in the animated
feature film Happy Feet, as well as classics like George Gershwin’s iconic 1935 “Summertime,” from the opera Porgy and Bess. Things will get swinging with “Little Sunflower” from the bebop, hard-bop, and post-bop jazz innovator Freddie Hubbard.
On Wednesday, November 30th, get back to the Mandell
Theater and join the Guitar and Mediterranean Ensembles for a holiday
concert with a twist featuring Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams”, Joe Beal and
Jim Boothe’s holiday favorite Jingle Bell Rock and the traditional western Macedonian kalamatiano song “Milo Mou Kokkino.”
Pop music will be center stage on Friday, December
