Sounds of the Stage and Screen promises delightful evening

WILMORE, KY—Asbury University’s Engaging Culture Weekend launches the fine arts events with an entertaining and diverse concert, Sounds of Stage and Screen, Thursday, April 22 at 7 p.m. in Hughes Auditorium. Five student ensembles of the Asbury University Music Department will participate: Orchestra, Women’s Choir, Men’s Glee Club, Handbell Choir, and Concert Band. The 80-minute program is free and open to the public

Dr. Ronald Holz believes this concert will appeal to the widest range of audience, and be among the most accessible and pleasing offerings the year. “Our students excel at this kind of entertainment; they can really sell these wonderful selections from the silver screen and musical stage.”

Film score excerpts will include Elmer Bernstein’s The Magnificent Seven, two Disney favorites—The Little Mermaid and Aladin, Sir William Walton’s Henry V, and even the Lisa Minelli show-stopper from the film of the same name, New York, New York, sung with gusto by the Men’s Glee Club. The Women’s Choir will join the men in some rollicking songs from Rogers’ and Hammerstein’s South Pacific. More great slices from Broadway will be drawn from such famous shows as Les Misérables, The Sound of Music and Fiddler on the Roof. Classics from opera round out this delightful program, including the Toreadors’ Song from Bizet’s Carmen and the beautiful violin solo, Meditation, from Massenet’s opera Thais, which will be played by freshman principal violin, Audra Goodnight, from Seattle, WA.
