Published: Feb 19, 2014

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 19, 2014) — Join the University of Kentucky Choristers for their sixth annual performance of “A Night on Broadway,” featuring 50 of UK's best student vocalists singing favorite Broadway tunes from musicals set around the world. The Choristers will take the stage 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 21 and 22, at the Frank H. Harris Grand Ballroom in the Student Center. This year "A Night on Broadway" will be presented as part of the 75th anniversary celebration of UK's Student Center.

 

“A Night on Broadway" is an entertaining evening for guests of all ages who love Broadway musicals. This event has quickly become one of the most popular concerts at UK with its program of musical theatre solos, duets and ensemble numbers from shows like "Miss Saigon," "Mary Poppins," "Lion King," "Spamalot," "Fiddler on the Roof," "In the Heights," "Camelot" and more.

 

In addition to great entertainment, "A Night on Broadway" also features great food. Appetizers and desserts will be provided by UK Catering Services, and hors d’oeurves will be provided beginning at 6:30 pm.

 

Tickets for "A Night on Broadway" are $25 for adults, $15 for UK faculty and staff, and $10 for UK students. VIP tickets are available for $35 and include preferred seating and reserved parking. Purchase tickets by calling the UK Student Center Ticket Office at 859- 257-TICS (8427) or at any TicketMaster location, including ticketmaster.com. Corporate tables are available for reservation through the ticket center.

 

The UK Choristers, the oldest performing organization on campus, specializes in choral repertoire of all periods and styles, including musical theatre. The ensemble performs under the direction of Maggie Blair. Students who participate in UK Choristers represent a variety of majors at the university. Part of the UK Choirs, the UK Choristers are housed at the UK School of Music in the UK College of Fine Arts.

 

Since May 14, 2013, the 75th anniversary of the grand opening of the school’s Student Union, far-flung Student Center alumni have joined with current students and staff at commemorative events that focused on the recognition of the building’s past and praise for the building’s future. The UK Student Center "has been a hub of activity on our campus," UK President Eli Capilouto recently said. "It has played host to famous concerts and events, housed thousands of student organizations and been an incubator for young men and women who would go on to amazing careers in business, politics and civic life."
