The choir provided the following information for performances in the upcoming BROADWAY Concert.
“Annie,” the story of an orphan who has a great attitude, features singing by the North Tahoe Children’s Choir. The choir is directed by Brad Perry and managed by Nora Behrens. The character of Annie is played by Rowan Behrens, a member of that singing group. Other appearances are Bill Roberts as Daddy Warbucks, Dawn Teran as the evil Miss Hannigan, and Ron Havens as Rooster, her co-conspirator in crime. Helene Larson and Barbara Ellis are also featured. The kids in the Incline North Tahoe Children’s Choir will be belting out “Hard Knock Life” along with helping us all sing “Tomorrow” together.
The movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” inspired us to sing music from the group Queen. We are singing the above song, along with several other hits from that era. Featured duets will be by Marty Gollery and Lorelei van Peborgh; David Pierce and Karen Colbert; Nicole Ross and Kayla Meltzer; and Nora Behrens and Bill Bryan.
“Les Mis” is one of our favorite pieces of musical theater. The music is gorgeous and profoundly moving, with touches of comedy. We will be hearing solos from Brad Perry (as Jean Valjean), Marty and Suzanne Gollery (as the “Masters of the House”), Rowan Behrens as young Cosette, Caroline Kaplan as Eponine, and Lorelei van Peborgh as Fantine. Dave Pierce will be singing “Empty Chairs and Empty Tables” as our hero. Marius. Dave Marelich, Bill Roberts, Ron Havens, and Bill Bryan will join Dave as the revolutionaries.
