UK Chorus brings ‘Broadway’ sound to UK

By Taylor Riley

The UK Choristers will be performing the third annual, ‘A Night on Broadway,’ Friday and Saturday, Feb. 25 and 26 at 7 p.m.

‘A Night on Broadway’ is presented by the UK College of Fine Arts, UK School of Music and UK Choirs.

Audience members should expect a cabaret-type performance with songs from “My Fair Lady,” “Mary Poppins” and other Broadway hits.

The UK Choristers are a 65-mixed voice choir and is the longest running performance organization at UK.

“It’s going to be an evening filled with good music with songs from the 1920s to today,” Brock Terry, director of the UK Choristers and director of ‘A Night on Broadway,’ said.

“This is also the first time we have used an actual choreographer to choreograph the show- Diana Evans of The Diana Evans School of Dance in Lexington,” Terry said.

UK catering services will begin serving hors d’oeuvres starting at 7 p.m. and the music will begin at 7:30 p.m. with food also served during the performance.

“The students have been working really hard and we are looking forward to a great show. This show provides a nice night out for the audience and it has real entertainment value,” Terry said.

The production will take place in the UK Student Center’s Frank H. Harris Grand Ballroom.

Tickets for ‘A Night on Broadway’ are on sale now; $25 for general admission, $15 for faculty and staff and $10 for students and children. To purchase tickets, contact the UK Student Center ticket office at (859) 257-TICS.
