By Elisa Lanter, media relations assistant

Celebration, the show choir of Northwest Missouri State University, will present its annual Spring Show at 8 p.m. Friday, April 25, in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

The show will feature songs from the popular Broadway musicals “Wicked,” “Memphis,” “City of Angels,” “Guys and Dolls” and “Cinderella” as well as music from “The Hunger Games.”

In addition to full company numbers, performers will be featured in solos and ensembles, spanning a variety of comic songs, poignant songs, and songs about love. The choir will be accompanied by a seven-piece band.

Admission to the show is free, and it is open to the public.

“This show will be as exciting and entertaining as previous shows, said Dr. Brian Lanier, who directs the Celebration choir and serves as associate professor of music at Northwest. “The variety of music, dancing and costumes all combine to create a special evening of outstanding performances from our students.”

Celebration members represent a variety of majors across the University. During the fall trimester, they are known as The Madraliers, a chamber choir that presents concerts on and off campus, including the annual Yuletide Feaste.
