Valley Light Opera Pub Sing
Amherst Brewing Company to host
Valley Light Opera’s “Pub Sing” of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado
On Friday, August 22, at 7:00 p.m., Amherst Brewing Company will host Valley Light Opera, a local community theater group, in a pub sing of music from The Mikado, one of the most famous comic operas created by the British lyricist/composer team of Gilbert and Sullivan.
This event will be informal and inclusive; everyone is welcome to join in. VLO soloists will be on hand to tackle the lead roles, and the audience will be the chorus. A few scores will be available, but participants should bring one if they have it. Even if you don’t know the words, there is a distinct possibility you will find yourself humming along. The music is that infectious. For more information about The Mikado, here is a link to the Gilbert and Sullivan Archive: http://math.boisestate.edu/gas/mikado/html/index.html.
Come join the fun at ABC on August 22!
