FIU Broadway Medley Benefit Concert

FIU Broadway Medley Benefit Concert Thursday, November 23, 7:30pm - Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Center, 10910 SW 17th Street, Miami

Broadway will come to life in a Broadway Medley Benefit concert to take place at the Herbert and Nicole Wertheim Performing Center on November 23, 2013 at 7:30p.m. Davis Gaines, the longest running Phantom in the history of The Phantom of the Opera, will co-star the show alongside Joy Abbott, the celebrated songstress and wife of the late, legendary George Abbott. All funds raised from the Broadway Medley Benefit will allow the FIU School of Music, in tandem with the FIU Department of Theatre, to better establish a musical theatrical program headed by the Vocal Studies Division. Students who graduate from the program will do so with working knowledge of staging, lighting, production, performance and other aspects of professional musical theatre. The evening will begin with a cocktail reception and a musical performance by the FIU Opera Theater Workshop in the Rotunda of Wertheim Performing Arts Center. Tickets for the benefit concert are $25 for the general public and $20 for the FIU faculty, staff and students.
