Toes will tap and memories will be created at the last Kingwood Chorale and Chamber Orchestra concert of the 2015-2016 season.
The Lake Houston Musical Arts Society (LHMAS) and Lone Star College-Kingwood invite the community to its “100 Years of Broadway” Concert May 6-7 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Kingwood. The chorale and orchestra will perform hit music from various eras of Broadway shows-from the 1920s to the present.
“This event is a nice diversion for the chorale and our faithful audience. We usually sing classical choral masterworks,” said Dr. Todd Miller, chorale conductor and music professor at LSC-Kingwood. “There are many songs that are well-known and are sure to be crowd favorites.”
The concert consists of 90 musicians who will perform Broadway classics from hit productions such as “The Music Man”, “South Pacific”, “My Fair Lady”, “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Godspell”, “and Rent”. The performance features Kingwood native Kristen Hertzenberg, and John Cornelius, composer, arranger and pianist. Hertzenberg is best known for her roles in “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Master Class”, “Hair”, and “Million Dollar Quartet”. Cornelius arranged a new setting of “Day Day Day” from “Godspell” for this concert.
“We will perform songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Gershwin and Andrew Lloyd Webber, just to name a few,” Miller said.
