The Clarke College Music Department will host its annual “Musical Menus on Broadway” on Friday, March 26 and Saturday, March 27, in the Wahlert Atrium on the Clarke campus. The event features five-course gourmet meal and the musical styling of various Clarke music ensembles, student soloists, faculty and guest performers.
Cost for the dinner and musical review is $40 per person with premier seating available both nights for $50 per person. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (563)584-8642 weekdays between 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or on-line at www.clarke.edu/artsatclarke. Seating for the event begins at 6 p.m. each night, with service starting at 6:30 p.m.
Funds raised from Musical Menus help fund various projects of the Clarke music department, including costs for new equipment as well as travel for tours of the College’s ensembles. The performance includes solo and small ensemble performances as well as performances by the Clarke Collegiate Singers, the Clarke Cantabile Singers, and Clarke Instrumental Ensembles.
“Musical Menus on Broadway has become a wonderful tradition at Clarke over the years and this year’s lineup should prove to be one of the best ever,” said Clarke Associate Professor of Music John Lease. “It is a time-honored tradition at Clarke because the students love to perform and the audiences love to see the amazing talent that Clarke produces.” This year’s event will include selections from a variety of Broadway shows, ranging from the classic “Les Misérables” to contemporary favorites like “Shrek.”
