VITERBO UNIVERSITY’S PLATINUM EDITION SHOW CHOIR AND GUESTS TO PRESENT CELEBRATION 2014 MARCH 29

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Viterbo University’s renowned Platinum Edition show choir and special guests will present an evening of great singing and dancing with their annual variety performance Celebration 2014 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 29 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre.

“We have a really fun show this year,” said director of Platinum Edition and Viterbo music faculty member Nancy Allen. “I really like it, and I think the audience will too.”

Celebration 2014 will feature a wide variety of music including Broadway, pop, and jazz. The dances have been professionally choreographed, and the show will feature a number of special performances, including a father/son duet performed by David Mahlum and Viterbo student Austin Mahlum and six solos and duets performed by members of Platinum Edition who auditioned for the roles.

Guest performers will include the Lincoln Middle School Show Choir and Tonal II, a men’s a cappella group. Professional musicians from the La Crosse area will serve as the back-up band for the performance.

“Several familiar songs will be performed in a different musical style, which will add to the fun,” Allen said. “For example, the group will perform a jazz/swing version of If I Were a Rich Man from Fiddler on the Roof.”

Celebration 2014 is the 15th spring show for Platinum Edition. The group is nationally known in show choir circles and has performed across the U.S. including New York, Los Angeles, Orlando, and Branson, Mo.

Tickets are $20 for main floor, $17 for lower balcony, and $14 for upper balcony seating. For more information, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit www.viterbo.edu/fac.
