     The University of Washington Chorale is excited to join the UW Chamber Singers and the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall in Downtown Seattle this coming weekend for the performance of “Some Enchanted Evening: Rodgers & Hammerstein Celebration”. The concert is summarized by this excerpt from the Seattle Symphony website:

“Celebrate the golden age of Broadway! New York Pops music director Steven Reineke brings to life the legendary music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Broadway actors Ashley Brown (Mary PoppinsBeauty and the Beast) and Aaron Lazar (The Last ShipA Little Night Music), along with baritone Jonathan Estabrooks and University of Washington Choirs, join the Seattle Symphony for a memorable program of favorites from Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific and more.”

The singers of UW Chorale have been working tirelessly on music for this concert, which opens this Friday, March 6th, at 8:00 pm. Additional shows are on Saturday, March 7th (also 8:00 pm) and a matinee on Sunday, March 8th (2:00 pm). Additional information can be found on the Seattle Symphony website, here.
