LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 13, 2017) “When you wish upon a star it makes no difference who you are,” so come on out and “Be Our Guest” as the University of Kentucky Choristers put on the ever-popular “A Night on Broadway” on Feb. 18, at the Singletary Center for the Arts.

This year’s production of "A Night on Broadway" focuses on Disney classics that have been adapted for the Broadway stage and will feature songs like “Just Around the Riverbend” from "Pocahontas," “Part of Your World” from "The Little Mermaid," “Hakuna Matata” from "The Lion King," and many more. UK Choristers invites the Bluegrass community to relive all of their old favorite Disney songs, as well as new favorites from shows like "Frozen" and "Toy Story 2," including a “Princess Medley” performed by the women of the UK Choristers and “A Villain Mash-up” by the men.

Due to the popularity of “A Night on Broadway,” a second performance has been added to this year's schedule. The UK Choristers will enchant audiences at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Singletary Center. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served before each show beginning at 2 and 7 p.m.

UK Choristers, conducted by Beth Wilson, is the oldest performing organization on campus. Filled with underclassmen and representing a wide variety of majors, the group frequently performs on and off campus. The 60-voice mixed choir specializes in choral repertoire of all periods and styles, both a cappella and accompanied, and also performs a major work each year with the UK Symphony Orchestra. Additionally, UK Choristers have been featured with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra in its "Unplugged and Untied" Concert Series.
