12 Jan ‘The Choir of Man’ planned Feb. 7
The University of Central Arkansas’s Reynolds Performance Hall will host international music and theater performers “The Choir of Man” at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7, as part of the group’s North American tour.
A worldwide hit, the show offers 90 minutes of indisputable joy. It is equal parts party and concert and an overall pint-filled good time set in a real working pub. The multi-talented cast is comprised of nine men from Ireland, Scotland and Great Britain who sing everything – pub tunes, folk music, Broadway tunes and classic rock. The performance combines hair-raising harmonies, high-energy dance and live percussion with foot-stomping choreography.
“The Choir of Man” is the latest project from the creative minds of Nic Doodson and Andrew Kay – the team behind “Soweto Gospel Choir,” “The Magnets” and the award-winning “North by Northwest.”
“The guys have spent the last couple of years touring the UK and Australia, and they are ready to bring this show to American audiences,” said Doodson. “This concert is such a great time for all – whether it’s a ladies’ night, first date, guy’s night out or even a bachelorette party!”
The show celebrates music that has wide appeal, including songs by Adele, Queen, Paul Simon, Katy Perry, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more. The cast also features world-class tap dancers, singers and instrumentalists, ensuring that there is something for everyone.
