“The students have enjoyed studying an eclectic mix of repertoire, which includes opera, operetta and musical theater,” said Timothy Morningstar, director. “The class is excited to present its final project to the community.”
Music director Dr. Karen Becker will accompany the students in a program that includes songs, arias and ensemble numbers by composers including Leonard Bernstein, Georges Bizet, Marvin Hamlisch and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
