Symphony brings songs of Broadway to Victoria

Broadway Lights will be staged at the Royal Theatre from March 20-22.

Sixty-four singers and dancers from the Canadian College of Performing Arts will join the Victoria Symphony for a salute to Broadway.

Broadway Lights will be staged at the Royal Theatre from March 20-22.

CCPA was first invited to perform with the Victoria Symphony a decade ago. That initial concert was a success and the biennial Broadway concerts have become a tradition.

Conducted by Giuseppe Pietraroia, Broadway Lights journeys along the Great White Way with the music of legendary composers Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, Andrew Lloyd Webber and others.

The singers and dancers of the CCPA join the orchestra in selections from Oklahoma, the Light in the Piazza, Phantom of the Opera and Beauty and the Beast.

Broadway Lights runs March 20 and 21 at 8 p.m. with matinee March 22 at 2 p.m., at the Royal Theatre, 805 Broughton St.

Tickets are available from the Victoria Symphony Box Office at 250-385-6515.
