The Loy Norrix choir has been working hard since the beginning of the school year, preparing for a show that opens November 11th, and continues over the weekend.
The performance will feature many loved childhood musical productions and is titled Disney Magic. This show includes songs from “The Lion King,” “Mulan,” and other Disney classics.
Specially featured in this performance are members of Loy Norrix’s very own football team.
“Not all of us can sing or dance, but we’re just getting out there to have a good time,” said senior Damarkis Lee, a member of the choir and varsity football team.
The members of the football team are featured in the song “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from the movie “Mulan.” Assistant football coach and sociology teacher Rob Bradford sings this number. The team members are background dancers who eventually become “men”as Bradford teaches them what they need to do.
Having the football team working with the choir is a twist from regular performances and gives the show an irregular but enjoyable flavor. This will hopefully also reel in the untapped audience that music departments are always searching for.
The performance is light hearted and well-developed, definitely an easy choice to fill up your evening this weekend.
Friday November 11th, 7:30 pm.
Saturday November 12th, 7:30 pm.
Sunday November 13th, 2:30 matinée.
