CHD Quilts to display at "Mad About Broadway" concert



The Southeastern Massachusetts Festival Chorus presents ‘Mad About Broadway’
The Southeastern Massachusetts Festival Chorus (SMFC) takes you on a musical journey through eighty years of Broadway favorites when it presents its annual spring concert on Saturday, May 16. Held at the newly completed Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School, “Mad About Broadway” will celebrate both the Golden Age of Broadway as well as the recent hits that have helped to redefine and reinvigorate the musical-theatre scene. Every decade from the 1930’s to present will be represented, so there is sure to be something for everyone in this high-spirited, musical presentation.
Among the selections to be featured are old favorites such as Anything Goes, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Luck Be a Lady and Bali, Ha’i and more recent Broadway hits such as Defying Gravity, Ballad of Sweeney Todd, Little Shop of Horrors and Seasons of Love. The 90-voice adult chorus will be accompanied by a 15 piece live orches tra, and the 40-member Festival Youth Chorus will also perform.

As an added treat for concert goers, The Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness Quilt Project will have several quilts from the project on display.


The Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Quilt Project was created to promote greater public awareness of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD), while honoring the strength, courage, and commitment of all those born with a CHD and their families.
