The Bristol Virginia Showchoir
July 28, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
The Bristol Virginia Senior Showchoir is a musical group of 60 senior adults ranging in ages of late 50’s – 90’s. They have been around for over 30 years presenting musical stage shows for the Bristol area and beyond. The group is part of the Bristol Virginia Parks and Recreation Department’s Programming Division and is offered as a Cultural Arts Program through the Douglass Senior Center. Their shows include both music and staging as they act out the songs they are performing.
This year’s show is entitled “LEGENDS OF SHOW BUSINESS” and it takes the audiences on an exciting journey of remembering some of those entertainers who have made it to the “legendary” status not only on Broadway but all facets such as motion picture and television as well as eras of music like the 50”s and styles such as rock n’ roll or country music. Some legends remembered are Elton John, Oliva Newton John & John Travolta in “Grease”. Others include Gene Autry, Glenn Miller, the Platters, Brooks & Dunn and the Beatles. The Showchoir also pays to tribute to a “hometown legend” Tennessee Ernie Ford.
You may catch their exciting performance of this show at the Paramount Center for the Arts on Thursday, July 28th at 7:30 pm and also June 29th at Tunes at Noon beginning at 12 noon. Admission for both shows is a suggested donation of $5.00 per person.
