For their March concert, Utah Voices will bring back its fan-favorite Broadway show with “Broadway Bingo 3.” Under the direction of Artistic Director Dr. Michael Huff and Associate Conductor Kelly DeHaan, Utah Voices will perform a roller-coaster of a repertoire that spans several decades. Most of the entertaining song sequence will be determined by Bingo draw. The audience is welcome to play along with Broadway Bingo cards that come in the program. Prizes have been donated by various local businesses.
There’s something for everyone in this show that features numbers from such hit shows as The Sound of Music, Memphis, Mamma Mia, Spamalot, Wicked and Man of LaMancha and medleys that highlight music from Rodgers and Hammerstein, Leonard Bernstein, Marvin Hamlisch, and many more. Kelly DeHaan and Jennifer Hohl as well as a couple of other special guests and choir members will delight the audience with solo or duet performances from more beloved musicals and of course, more fun and laughter. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth this year!
In order to secure the all-star band of local talent, Utah Voices seeks your help in securing a collection of Utah’s finest freelance musicians for a terrific band to accompany the choir and complete a great show. To achieve our goal, we must hire a nearly a dozen musicians for dress rehearsal and performance. “Broadway Bingo 3” will be Wednesday, March 13, 7:00 p.m. at Libby Gardner Hall at the University of Utah School of Music, (1375 E. President’s Circle) in Salt Lake City.
A contribution to Utah Voices supports individuals who give back, to you and your community. It gives you a place among supporters of Utah’s thriving music community, and it helps the chorus enrich the lives of others through the gift of music. Utah Voices is a non-profit organization and relies upon membership dues, ticket sales, contributions from the community, member fundraising and volunteers to cover the cost of each concert.
“I am more aware than ever of how choral music plays a key role in helping communities weather all sorts of storms… [Choral music] builds community. It brings together people of different ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds, united in a love of great music. Have we ever needed this more than right now?” Knight Kiplinger, editor-in-chief of all Kiplinger financial publications, choir singer
Risks and challenges
We have successfully used Kickstarter in the past in order to raise funds for our Broadway Bingo concert, so we are confident to be able to reach out to our community, through our singers, in order to meet our fundraising goal. One of the risks we take is not meeting our goal, and since our concert is dependent on raising enough money to pay the concert hall fees, the musicians and band, and all other concert expenses. However, we are confident in our singers and their ability to convey our message to their friends and family in order to create interest and support for our project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
