Come on along and listen to Yavapai on Broadway

PRESCOTT - A choral concert consisting entirely of songs from Broadway shows and featuring Yavapai College's six choirs will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Performing Arts Center on campus.

Costumes and choreography will set the mood for some sections of the concert, dubbed "Yavapai on Broadway."

Angelorum, the women's choir, will begin with three selections: "Blessed Our Show," "How I Got the Calling" and "Raise Your Voice," all from "Sister Act" by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater. Chris Eubank is the choral and piano studies director.

Adjunct Choral Director Darrell Rowader and the Community Chorale will step back in time with a Pete King arrangement of "Night and Day," from Cole Porter's "Gay Divorcee."

The following act will be the Chamber Singers with "Seize the Day," from the Disney stage version of "Newsies." The Master Chorale, with Rowader, will bring songs from "Showboat," arranged by Hawley Ades, and the Chamber Singers will round out the first half of the afternoon with a medley from "Rent," arranged by Mac Huff.

After the intermission, Eubank and the Vocal Ensemble will present songs from "Smokey Joe's Café," arranged by Mark Brynner. The Chamber Singers will follow with "My Favorite Things" from "The Sound of Music," with Paris Rutherford handling the arrangement.

Rowader and the Community Chorale will perform "Oklahoma!" from the show by the same name.

The Chamber Singers will perform Andy Beck's arrangement of "Over the Rainbow," and the Chamber Choir will conclude the program with a medley from "Hairspray," in a Huff arrangement.

Sara Gallaher, Barbara Knight and Stephen Ramsey will be the accompanists.

Admission is $5, and free to youths 14 and younger. Tickets are available at the college's art gallery, or by calling 776-2031.
