PopUp Chorus

The ArtsCenter, Durham, NC, 27510

Our theme for February is Valentine's Day inspired. Come sing these musical theater songs; three classic Broadway show tunes and a newer song, "Falling Slowly" from 2007 cult musical film, Once. This will be a night of love songs that you do not want to miss! Extra songs because our January event was snowed out!

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the singing starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $13 for adults/ $8 students (not including ticket fee and taxes). Children 12 and under are free (not suggested for children under 10).

Get familiar with the songs and remember, everyone is welcome, regardless of vocal ability or experience. Come if you love to sing and you love musicals!

I Got Rhythm" from Girl Crazy

"Falling Slowly" from Once

Can't Help Loving Dat Man of Mine from Showboat

Happy Valentine from Babes In Arms

Do you like to sing? Do you have fantasies of being on a Broadway stage? Do you adore musicals and Broadway shows? Did you sing and perform in high school or college and do you miss it? If you sing in the shower, in your car, or along to your favorite soundtrack recording then you belong in PopUp Chorus Broadway!

At our monthly events, folks come together to learn and perform two fabulous show tunes - one song from the classic era of Broadway musicals and one from a more contemporary show. We spend about 40 minutes learning each song before moving on to a final performance, which is filmed and recorded.

Everybody is welcome, regardless of ability! We are a drop-in chorus that invites all people who love to sing - regardless of experience - to join us. No audition or monthly commitment is required ? just show up at The ArtsCenter to sing.
PopUp Broadway is conducted by Dr. Allan Friedman. Allan is the music director at Durham?s Judea Reform Congregation and artistic director of Women?s Voices Chorus, and was a choral conductor for Duke Chapel Music for eight years. He is joined by Dr. Deborah Hollis, a much-loved area accompanist and piano teacher. Deborah plays the piano as the singers learn and perform the material.

?This is a low-pressure, high-fun event. You don?t need to be able to sing well, and you don?t need to know anyone else who is going,? says conductor Allan Freidman. ?No one will judge you for your voice or your knowledge. It?s a chance to make great music in a welcoming setting with minimal commitment. Singing, especially group singing, makes you feel good!?

It is never too early to start familiarizing yourself with the material for this event! Feel free to listen to the original cast recordings of these two songs, or any of the other versions you will find on YouTube.

Remember, Allan will teach these songs, so it is fine to attend even if you have not heard the songs before. You will learn them and have great fun!

Come be a part of the chorus (line), ensemble and cast. PopUp Broadway is everybody?s opening night, your chance to sing the show tunes you love, and maybe even discover a new song and show!

Drinks available from the bar. Free parking in the multi-story parking deck adjacent to The ArtsCenter.
