Space Coast Symphony Orchestra Takes On Broadway
By Space Coast Daily // January 26, 2013
Performance At 7 P.M. Saturday
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA –Better than watching a movie of a great Broadway hit is listening to the music played live while a cast of singers performs your favorites.
Fans of the famous musical films can still get their fill as another Space Coast Symphony Orchestra multi-media event kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts in north Melbourne.
The innovative program will alternate between a live soundtrack for on-screen musical movie clips — to providing accompaniment for a cast of 35 live singers.
Local standouts Stephen Mumbert, Sherry MacLean, Eliza Dopira, Beth Green, Amy Shied and Shawn Jesseman will join the symphony orchestra to perform numbers from classic Broadway shows including West Side Story, Grease, Chicago, The Producers, My Fair Lady, and many more.
For Brevard County Symphony Orchestra artistic director Aaron T. Collins, “Broadway: From Stage to Screen” is a perfect balance of music and visual spectacle.
“There’s just something special about Broadway tunes that audiences love,” said Collins. “We’ve got great singers, beautiful movie clips and even a special surprise. It’s better than a box of Cracker Jacks!”
Once again, organizers are tight-lipped about a “special surprise” in store for the audience.
Advance $20 tickets for adults are available through the orchestra website at www.SpaceCoastSymphony.org or at several convenient ticket outlets, including Ace Hardware stores in Indialantic, Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach, Blue Sky Insurance in Cocoa Village, Tropical Realty of Suntree, Art Expressions in downtown Eau Gallie, A Floral Affair in Merritt Island and Palm Bay Hearing Aid Center.
Tickets at the door are $25. Children and students 18 and under are free. Details about the Symphony for Everyone discount ticket program are on the orchestra website.
