Long Beach Camerata Singers Presents Annual Broadway Show June 14
2014-06-06 · By Editor
They may sing classical music the rest of the year, but every June the Long Beach Camerata Singers snap their fingers and tap their toes at the annual Broadway Show and Silent Auction event, which takes place on Saturday June 14, 2014 at the the Gerald R. Daniel Recital Hall on the campus of California State University, Long Beach.
This year’s show is called Broadway on the Radio! Artistic Director Robert Istad says, “Every song in the show was either on the radio in the past or topped the Billboard charts in its day.” The opening act includes rock and roll favorites like Pinball Wizard, Greased Lightning, and You Can’t Stop the Beat. New York! New York launches the second act of Broadway standards, which closes with a Gershwin medley. The last act features songs from the Top 40 and the show will close with a rousing version of the rock anthem, Don’t Stop Believin’.
The doors open at 6:30pm for drinks and dinner, which are included in the ticket price. A carefully curated Silent Auction will feature a wide variety of items including tickets to local cultural events, wine, antiques and weekend get-away packages. Camerata has partnered with Uber for this concert, and first time users of the transportation service will receive $50 toward their ride.
