For a second year in a row, Fairfield Prep musicians had a strong presence at the Anti-Defamation League's "VOICES: A Show of Unity" event at the Klein Memorial Auditorium.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, students from Fairfield Prep's music program joined several area choirs as the opening act at the VOICES event, which is a fundraising benefit and community gathering designed to bring people together and foster dialogue.

The combined VOICES choir (listed below) was conducted by Prep Music Teacher Mr. Dan Horstmann.

"The theme for the evening bringing people together to celebrate unity and diversity," Mr. Horstmann said. "And what better way to do that through the universal language of song and music."

The VOICES choir permed two songs: "This Little Light of Mine" and "This Is Me," from the 2018 film The Greatest Showman.

Paul Shaffer, famed musician and musical director of the Late Show with David Letterman, hosted the evening and Trombone Shorty was the headliner.

The night was hosted by Paul Shaffer, and the headliner was Trombone Shorty.
