Broadway On Highland
An Open Performance Event for Singers with Host, Norina Rowen
If you love Broadway, come over to WCMS and sing your favorite Broadway hit or join the crowd during our sing-along numbers. All ages and ability levels are welcome! Singers from beginners to seasoned professionals are cordially invited to strut their stuff during this fun evening. Solo, duo, trio, or family act? We're happy to include you.
Sign-ups for performers and run-throughs with the accompanist take place from 6:30-7:30 PM on the evening of the event (when held on a Friday), first come-first served.
Guidelines for Performers:
- You don't need to be memorized, but your selection should be well-prepared.
- Bring your sheet music (no lead sheets) and a copy for one of our fabulous accompanists. Your piano music must be in the key in which you plan to sing. No a cappella renditions.
- Family-friendly lyrics and casual dress—no costumes, please!
- Please arrive at 6:30 PM on the evening of the event (when held on a Friday) to sign up for a once-through run-through with an accompanist.
