Broadway at the Boulders is a new, family-friendly outdoor concert benefitting New Vision Renewable Energy. The performance features Concordia University, Nebraska’s University A Cappella Choir, Brass Ensemble and student solos and duets. The 7 p.m. concert will be on the Holthus Family Plaza outside Janzow Campus Center April 17, 2016. The event is free, and the public is invited to attend.

“This should be a fun evening of some very familiar and well-loved tunes,” said Director of Music Dr. Kurt von Kampen. “It is a bit of a departure from the A Cappella Choir’s usual repertoire, but they have had a great time learning the music and look forward to an exciting evening of music making. Bring lawn chairs and blankets and pray for sunshine!”

The concert will feature music from “West Side Story,” “Oliver,” “Newsies,” “The Sound of Music” and other musical and movie themes.

In the event of poor weather, the concert will be held in the Cattle Conference Room on the main level of Janzow Campus Center.
