LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 18, 2014) — At the University of Kentucky, the music doesn't stop for summer break. UK Opera Theatre stages its final three performances of this year's "It's a Grand Night for Singing!" 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 20 and 21, and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 22, at the Singletary Center for the Arts.

 

In its 22nd year, "Grand Night" has become known for performances of beloved Hollywood, Broadway and Top 40 tunes. More than 100 university and community talents come together to present a musical extravaganza of these classic songs.

 

Ticket prices for "Grand Night" range from $17-45. Group rates are available for groups of 25 or more. A processing fee will be applied upon completion of all transactions.

 

In honor of Russ Williams, the university's first representative of the staff on the Board of Trustees who died in 2009, each performance of “Grand Night” will also have select seats available to UK staff for only $25, plus processing fees. There is a limit of two tickets per valid UK staff I.D.

 

To purchase tickets, contact the Singletary Center ticket office at 859-257-4929, online at www.scfatickets.com, or in person.

 

UK Opera Theatre is one of a select group of U.S. opera training programs recommended by the Richard Tucker Music Foundation. The Tucker Foundation is a nonprofit cultural organization dedicated to the support and advancement of the careers of talented American opera singers by bringing opera into the community and heightening appreciation for opera by supporting music education enrichment programs.

 

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