“I’m excited to be part of a combined concert that celebrates an extraordinary variety of music, all brought together by its use in the story-telling genres of musical theatre, movies, and television,” said Jeff DeLay, Vocal Music Instructor.
The Royal Scots will perform songs from musical theatre that have become jazz standards, and the Chamber Singers will present a “Les Misérables” medley and an operatic excerpt from Smetana’s “The Bartered Bride,” in addition to other selections.
The Highland Chorale will sing a set of familiar jazz pieces from movies and the featured piece is a “Mary Poppins Returns” medley, which features a 13-piece instrumental ensemble accompanying the singers.
Highland Youth Choir will sing songs from “Zootopia,” “Smallfoot,” and themes from a variety of movies.
