It’s back! Irvington Town Hall Theater (ITHT) kicks off its 2016-2017 season on Saturday, September 17th at 7:30pm with the return of the ITHT Tune-Up Chorus. People had such a great time last year that the Friends of the Theater has expanded the repertoire to include songs from the last six decades through to the present. The event offers music lovers the opportunity to gather together and sing some favorite tunes with complete abandon– regardless of ability! Pop-up choruses have been a huge hit around the country; The Irvington Town Hall Theater will come alive with singing when the community joins together under the musical direction of theater manager, Greg Allen.
“Last year was a blast and our audience wanted a repeat so we decided to make it a yearly event,” says Alison Cooper-Mullin, Friends of the Theater member and Tune-Up Chorus chairperson. “We think our larger song list will generate even more excitement than last season.”
The ITHT Tune-Up Chorus is a benefit to ‘tune-up’ the theater with ticket purchases going to support a new entrance/lobby beautification project. Enjoy food and beer donated by Captain Lawrence Brewing Company while having a community party. ITHT’s theater manager is an accomplished musical director and is bringing David Maglione with him to provide irresistible back-up music.
Tune-Up Chorus offers the thrill of a flash mob with the spirit of a backyard BBQ – and you don’t even have to be a great singer to be involved — just someone wanting to have fun!
“I’ve had a fantastic time working with Alison and David on this event,” says ITHT manager Greg Allen. “Now I just have to work on learning all of those songs we’ve chosen and hope that everyone sings out really loudly!”
All tickets for the event are $20 and can be purchased in advance.
