BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

It's enough to make you want to jump up with 'Glee'!

The Emmy, Tony and Golden Globe-nominated Matthew Morrison will perform at this year's Zoellner Arts Center's Gala2013 event on Saturday, November 2.

Morrison will perform a variety of Broadway standards and hits of the Great American Songbook alongside a 65-piece symphony orchestra.

Now a familiar face as Will Schuester on Fox TV's hit television series Glee, the Southern California native has been turning heads on the Great White Way for years.

After studying musical theater, dance and vocal performance at NYU, Morrison made his Broadway debut in Footloose, followed by The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Funds raised at Gala2013 support the arts at Lehigh University and programs at Zoellner.

Concert-only tickets go on sale to the general public July 11. Tickets will be available for $75 and $150 and include the 8 p.m. performance and a post-performance dessert reception.

There are a limited number of $55 tickets available for any full-time students.

Zoellner subscribers and donors can buy concert-only tickets on April 6.
