An orchestral tour of Broadway

Strathcona Symphony Orchestra at the Native Sons Hall

The Strathcona Symphony Orchestra

Bravo for Broadway!

Join  the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra  on a musical tour of seven decades of the best  of the Broadway stage.

Under the baton of Maestro Pippa Williams aboard a musical magic carpet you will visit the blue skies and waters of South Pacific, the moody,  gloomy world of the Phantom of the Opera, the sad, dreary tone of Fiddler on the Roof, the grim violent slums of the setting for West Side Story or the exotic court of the King of Siam with Anna.

The background to the stories is drawn from many sources old and new.

Lerner and Loewe took George Bernard Shaw’s classic play Pygmalion and  adapted it skillfully into the lavish musical My Fair Lady.

Set in the lovely scenery of Austria The Sound of Music tells the story of the Von Trapp family.

Come and join the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra on this musical tour of the highlights of the best of Broadway. We supply the music and you supply the memories.

Showtimes are 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 24 and 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 25 at the Native Sons Hall in Courtenay.

Tickets ($15) are available at Blue Heron Books in Comox and Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay.

For more information call 250-331-018.
