The Waimea Community Chorus will pay tribute to some of the musicals that have re-opened on Broadway after the devastating COVID shutdown. With so many shows to choose from, musical director Barbara Kopra has selected a wide range of tunes that will entice the audience to sing along
There will be selections from long-standing shows like Chicago and Phantom of the Opera to recent productions like Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen.
The program will also include beautiful numbers like “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” (Lion King) to bold songs like “Backstage Romance” (Moulin Rouge). In addition, you can look forward to gorgeous piano accompaniments like “Think of Me” (Phantom) to brass ensembles like the medley from Ain’t Too Proud: The Life and Times of The Temptations. “For Good” (Wicked) and “Friend Like Me” (Aladdin) will also be included.
Barbara Kopra stated, “As the chorus started up this winter, amidst COVID concerns, I was impressed with the dedication these singers showed in wanting to make music. Of special note are the five octogenarians in this season’s group. They are a tremendous inspiration to me and a constant reminder that pursuing one’s passion gives meaning and fulfillment to life. I have a great appreciation for them and their commitment.”
