Kauai Voices Brings "Broadway, Baby!" to Kauai

Kauai Voices will present Broadway, Baby!, an evening of timeless and cherished songs from Broadway musicals, this January and February in venues across the island. Kauai’s popular 50+ voice auditioned choral ensemble will perform all-time showstoppers from shows such as Fiddler On The Roof, Sunset Boulevard, Hello Dolly!, Phantom of the Opera, Wicked, Evita and many more. “This season, due to overwhelming demand and attendance at past sell-out concerts, we will expand our performances from three to five shows — offering the additional two concerts on the North and West shores of the island,” said Randy Leonard, artistic director for Kauai Voices. The choir will kick off its 16th season at the Porter Pavilion at Anaina Hou in Kilauea, on Saturday, January 19 at 6 PM, then perform its usual concerts at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Lihue, on Friday & Saturday, January 25 and 26 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, January 27 at 3 PM.
