Broadway comes to Scotland this Thursday, February 4.
Glasgow and Broadway have a special relationship. Why else do Guys in the city call their ladies Dolls? The connection is celebrated this Thursday, 4 February, when the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra is joined by 70 talented young singers from Glasgow's schools for an evening of Songs from the Shows. Through a partnership project between Glasgow Education Services and the BBC SSO, pupils from across the city will sing songs from some of the greatest musicals of all time, such as Oliver, Kiss Me Kate and Calamity Jane. The chorus is backed by a superb 80 piece orchestra, the men dressed in white tuxedos and the ladies in black evening gowns. There will be quite a few stunning soloists and the teenagers will be glammed up for the occasion. It all happens in Glasgow City Halls, which will be fully kitted-out in sparkly curtains and Hollywood lights. The evening begins at at 7.30pm and there are still some tickets left. You can book online or pay at the door - see here for details. Take your mum and your gran to enjoy a night of right belters.
