The Huron Valley Milford High School Vocal Music Program is gearing up to present its annual Pops 2012 blockbuster performance, “Over the Rainbow Where Dreams Come True,” on Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24.
Both performances begin at 7 p.m. under the direction of Chorale Director Maryann Lambrecht.
Tickets cost $10 each and can be purchased online at www.mhsperformingarts.com.
The two-hour events are intended for all ages. It promises a fun evening filled with song and dance by Center Stage, a student group of 27 performers; and Choraleers, comprised of 35 female vocalists. These groups travel throughout the community as entertaining acts, especially during the holidays.
“They do a lot of appearances as one means of fund-raising,” said Milford High School Principal Kevin McKenna.
Each “Over the Rainbow” performance will showcase music and dance that align with dreams including romance; childhood memories, nightmares; and magical places.
Vocalists will take to the stage and belt out their best renditions of songs like “Forget About the Boy” and “Night Before Christmas.” As a special performance, there will be singing and dancing to an African culture piece complete with a bevy of drums.
Proceeds benefit the vocal music program for uniforms and travel expenses incurred throughout the year.
“This is the annual show they work on all year-long, a culminating performance and fund-raiser,” McKenna said.
The Milford High School Center for Performing Arts is home to four different choral groups, including a men’s ensemble; women’s ensemble; an all advanced female group (the Choraleers); and an advanced mix group, Center Stage.
