Full of Glee 

Mr. Leprechaun: Turn that frown upside down! The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a lot to be happy about these days. To wit: The university was recently named the 20th best university nationwide by U.S. News & World Report; the 2006 football team did Touchdown Jesus proud with a 10-3 record; super QB Brady Quinn looks to be a high pick in the upcoming NFL draft; and the men's and women's basketball teams are lacing up their tennies as they prepare for March Madness. So is it any wonder that the University of Notre Dame Glee Club is touring the States spreading the gospel?

These merry sons of Notre Dame will be appearing this Saturday at the Church of the Holy Spirit. The all-male choir will perform a cappella hits from the Renaissance, Classical, and Romantic periods, and they will shake down the thunder with folk songs, barbershop ditties, and African-American spirituals.

There's no charge to hear these lads "sing her glory and sound her fame/Raise her gold and blue and cheer with voices true." (They'll surely belt out the Shea brothers classic "Notre Dame Victory March" along with everything else.)

Not a Notre Dame fan? Don't fight it. With the school's glee club here on St. Patrick's Day, how much more perfect can it get? For this day, at least, the town's taps will be pouring green beer, and it'll be "Rah Rah for Notre Dame" for everybody.

University of Notre Dame Glee Club, Church of the Holy Spirit, 2300 Hickory Crest. Saturday, March 17th, 7:30 p.m. Free.
