INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Butler University Chorale will back up Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones during their concert Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Butler Director of Choral Activities Eric Stark says the 26-member chorale is rehearsing this week to prepare for performing the Stones song "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

The chance to join the iconic rock band follows the choral group's performance with Madonna during the 2012 Super Bowl halftime show at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The chorale will be split into two groups flanking Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood and drummer Charlie Watts. Indianapolis Men's Chorus conductor Greg Sanders and Butler professor Doug Spaniol will conduct the two sections.
