Please join us at PopUp Broadway on Thursday, March 22 to sing four songs from Fiddler on the Roof – a classic musical which encompass universal and all-too-modern themes – the clash of tradition versus modernity, the plight of exiles, and the celebration of life in the face of uncertainty. Remember, everyone is welcome to sing, regardless of vocal ability or experience. Come if you love to sing and come if you love Broadway!
Conducted by Dr. Allan Friedman, the music director at Durham’s Judea Reform Congregation and artistic director of Women’s Voices Chorus, PopUp Broadway singers are in good hands! Allan leads each event with humor, skill and kindness, helping participants find their voice, and create a sense of community through singing with others. We know that the beautiful music of Fiddler on the Roof will have a special resonance and encourage you to join us for this very special PopUp Broadway!
Allan Freidman will be joined by Dr. Deborah Hollis, a much-loved area accompanist and piano teacher. Deborah plays the piano as the singers learn and perform the material.
Our songs for the evening will be:
“If I Were A Rich Man”
“Matchmaker, Match Maker”
Are you new to PopUp Broadway?
Do you like to sing? Do you have fantasies of being on a Broadway stage? Do you adore musicals and Broadway shows? If you sing in the shower, in your car, or along to your favorite soundtrack recording then you belong in PopUp Broadway!
At our monthly events, folks come together to learn and perform show tunes before moving on to a final performance, which is filmed and recorded. Everybody is welcome! We are a drop-in chorus that invites all people who love to sing – regardless of ability – to join us.
“This is a low-pressure, high-fun event. You don’t need to be able to sing well, and you don’t need to know anyone else who is going,” says conductor Allan Freidman. “No one will judge you for your voice or your knowledge. It’s a chance to make great music in a welcoming setting with minimal commitment. Singing, especially group singing, makes you feel good!”
