Celebration, the show choir of Northwest Missouri State University, will present its annual Spring Show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 29, in the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

This year’s show features a variety of choreographed performances, showcasing popular songs and music from films, including “The Jacksons,” “Tower of Power” and “La La Land.”

In addition to full company numbers, performers are featured in solos and ensembles spanning a variety of comic songs, poignant songs and songs about love. A nine-piece band accompanies the choir.

“This year’s Celebration Show will showcase our extremely talented students in both music and theatre disciplines,” Dr. Adam Zrust, who directs the Celebration choir and serves as an assistant professor of music at Northwest, said. “The music targets a variety of emotions — heartfelt to joyful — and will be enhanced by our fantastic lighting and audio designers. It will surely captivate those in attendance.”

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

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