The Austin Community College Choral Department is ready to take you on a nostalgic trip to the 1940s. The choir will present the Broadway musical “The 1940’s Radio Hour” at Austin’s One World Theatre November 17-19.
The show replicates a 1942 live radio broadcast, complete with vocal jazz numbers, an onstage big band, commercials, and mystery theater. Proceeds from “The 1940’s Radio Hour” will help ACC choral students cover the cost of a trip to perform at Carnegie Hall next spring.
“This is a very exciting time for our choir program,” says Dr. Jim Shepherd, associate professor of music and ACC choir director. “Students will have the experience of performing in a beloved musical at One World Theatre and then the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall.”
ACC is among a select few community college ensembles that will perform at Carnegie Hall in April 2010.
“1940’s Radio Hour” Performance Schedule:
- Tuesday, November 17 at 7:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, November 18 at 11:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
