The Choral Connection presents vintage American pop music at 12:10 p.m. May 8 in the University Hospital main lobby, as part of the U-M Health System Gifts of Art series of live music performances. Carolyn Tjon Burnstein directs this 20-member troupe in presenting "The Joint is Jumpin!" — a jazzy musical revue celebrating the singular sounds of American retro music. This original production puts its own spin on finger-snapping jazz standards, the days of small screen television and rousing hits from the world of musical theater with harmonies, up-tempo staging and a big beat.
