LA CROSSE, Wis. – Platinum Edition, Viterbo University’s renowned show choir, will present Solid Gold—Then and Now at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25 in the Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on campus.
Solid Gold—Then and Now will feature hits from the British Invasion, disco, and old and new country music favorites.
“I’m excited about the concept of the show, which will have something for everyone,” said Nancy Allen, Viterbo music faculty member and director of Platinum Edition. “Platinum Edition has many new faces this year and all the members have a great work ethic. They have learned six big production numbers for this show, and their vocal talents are amazing.”
The show was designed by Allen and Kurt Schuldes, the lead guitar player for the popular area band, The Remainders. Serving as emcees this year are Kim Shively, music teacher at La Crosse Central High School, Cory Malles, WKBT meteorologist, and Doug Mahlum, lead singer for the band Double Take.
