Join the Beaufort History Museum’s presentation of “Live from New York, Broadway Americana” at the USCB Center for the Arts on Saturday, June 24.
Join us as singers from one of the world’s–and America’s–best-known theatrical venues perform a medley of songs from some of Broadway’s biggest hits with a historical theme. Song selection will consist of Americana music and hits from such well-known productions as “Hamilton”, “1776”, “Porgy and Bess”, “New York, New York”, “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “Ragtime”, and others.
The group will be led by Beaufort native Lenora Eve who holds graduate and undergraduate degrees in music and vocal performance and is currently the Executive Artistic Director at Opera Breve in New York City where she is a vocal instructor and accompanist/coach. Lenora has sung nationally and internationally in operatic and musical theater roles including eight roles with Amato Opera in New York City; Broadway national tour of The Sound of Music with Richard Chamberlain; and State Fair with John Davidson. In addition, she was in the International Tour of The Sound of Music with Marie Osmond traveling to Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong and Seoul, Korea. One of her most memorable moments remains her performance as the alto soloist in Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass at Carnegie Hall in New York.
After traveling internationally for several years in musical events, Lenora relocated to New York City where she has been a director of numerous operas and musical productions.
Lenora is an established and acclaimed teacher and coach. Her vocal studio boasts an eclectic variety of students, including those from the world of Broadway and opera–several of whom you will see and hear perform at this event.
