WEST SIDE STORY IN CONCERT
Sunday, November 11, 2018
University of Evansville Opera
Members of the Evansville Philharmonic Chorus
We continue the 100th birthday celebration of legendary American composer, Leonard Bernstein, with the most groundbreaking musical of the 20th century. West Side Story is a modern day retelling of the story of Romeo & Juliet through the rival gangs of New York City’s Jets and Sharks. Featuring an exciting mix of jazz and Latin music, West Side Story includes “Somewhere,” “Tonight,” and “America,” songs that have become true American classics. This concert demonstrates the EPO’s continued commitment to bringing opera and musical theatre to the Victory Theatre stage. It also furthers the Philharmonic’s collaboration with the University of Evansville Opera.
