LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 11, 2024) — The University of Kentucky Choristers brings back the beloved annual Night on Broadway (NOB) to the Singletary Center Recital Hall stage Saturday, March 23, with two performances of “A Magical Night on Broadway

This year, the UK Choristers’ musical theatre showcase will feature hits from "The Little Mermaid," "Mary Poppins," "Beauty and the Beast," "Tarzan" and more that will undoubtedly make us all feel the magic of Disney.  

"This show is a favorite of both performers and patrons alike,” said Beth Wilson, D.M.A., conductor of UK Choristers.

The oldest performing organization on campus, UK Choristers represents a wide variety of majors. The 95-voice mixed choir specializes in choral repertoire of all periods and styles, both a cappella and accompanied. Choristers was a featured performing choir at both the 2021 and 2022 KMEA Conferences. Additionally, the ensemble performs a major work each year with UK Symphony Orchestra as well as regular on and off campus concerts and frequent tours throughout the region.   

“Night On Broadway has been my favorite performance that I have done at UK every year,” said UK Choristers co-president Jasmine Sturgeon, an arts administration major minoring in percussion. “This year’s theme being Disney has been the most exciting! At each rehearsal, you can feel the collective pride and excitement. NOB will forever hold a special place in my heart, and I hope that everyone comes to experience it from the seats.” 

 "A Magical Night on Broadway" will take center stage at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 23, at the Singletary Center Recital Hall. Tickets are $17 for students, $34 for adults, plus additional ticketing fees. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the Singletary Center box office at 859-257-4929.

UK Choristers are part of the School of Music at the UK College of Fine Arts. The school has garnered a national reputation for high-caliber education in opera, choral and instrumental music performance, as well as music education, music therapy, composition, theory and music history.
