Welcome PopUp Broadway! A brand new program that will give you the chance to sing the musical theater songs that you love.
On Thursday, October 26 Community Chorus Program launches a new program at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro called PopUp Broadway! Based on the on-going PopUp Chorus series led by Amelia Shull, this new iteration has a musical theater twist – an Oklahoma, Hamilton, West Side Story, Grease, Guys and Dolls, Fiddler on the Roof – Broadway kind of twist!
At each monthly PopUp Broadway! event, folks will join us to learn and perform two beloved show tunes. At the debut PopUp Broadway! event on October 26, we will sing the epic “Do You Hear the People Sing” from Les Miserables and “Do Re Mi” from The Sound of Music.
PopUp Broadway! will be guided by conductor, Dr. Allan Friedman. Allan is the music director at Durham’s Judea Reform Congregation and artistic director of Women’s Voices Chorus, and was a choral conductor for Duke Chapel Music for eight years. Our musical/teaching team is made complete with the addition of Dr. Deborah Hollis, a much-loved area accompanist and piano teacher. Deborah will accompany the singers as they learn and perform the material.
As with PopUp Chorus, everybody is welcome at PopUp Broadway! regardless of ability or experience, although we certainly hope to attract singers with musical theater experience too! No audition is required – just show up at The ArtsCenter to sing two songs and make two music videos. All that is required is a love of musical theater and a commitment to having fun.
Each PopUp Broadway! event will feature one song from the classic era of Broadway musicals and one from a more contemporary show. The song selections for the second PopUp Broadway event on November 30 are “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” from The Wizard of Oz and “Seasons of Love” from Rent.
Join us at our debut PopUp Broadway! on 10/26! Advance tickets can be purchased from the ArtsCenter’s website. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the singing starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $13 for adults, $8 for students with an ID, and free for children 12 and under.
It is never too early to start practicing with the links below! If you love musical theater, come be a part of the chorus (line), ensemble and cast! PopUp Broadway is everybody’s opening night, your chance to meet your inner star, and best of all – an opportunity to explore together this great American art form; musical theater.
