Andrew Lloyd Webber in concert

MUSIC OF THE NIGHT: The Concert Tour
the beloved music of Andrew Llloyd Webber
Tuesday September 24
7:30 p.m.
Venables Theatre
6100 Gala Street Oliver, BC

TICKETS: $45, Senior/ Student $35

This concert celebration of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 70th Birthday and his acclaim as the most successful musical theatre composer of all time will feature his most iconic theatrical music including selections from Phantom of the Opera, Evita, Cats, Jesus Christ Superstar, Sunset Blvd, and more! With a fully professional cast, many of whom have performed throughout Canada and Australia, we are sure this parade of musical offerings will overwhelm the musical senses. Sound the Alarm’s ‘Music of the Night’ tour will remind eighteen BC audiences, from Courtenay to Cranbrook, why Andrew Lloyd Webber is the musical phenomenon he is known to be.

The fully professional cast performed the first leg of their tour to
packed houses in Whistler, Salt Spring and across Vancouver Island last month. Audiences were enchanted with the beauty of
Music of the Night, praising the quality and talent of the performers.

Rave reviews included:
“Such an amazing concert. DON’T MISS THIS SHOW if it comes to your area. “ “The concert was fantastic!! What talent!”
“The whole cast is so talented bringing this music to life.”

The cast is comprised of both musical theatre veterans and emerging artists. Baritone Zander Felton and Mezzo Amy Gartner
are two of the province’s most promising young theatre artists and musicians. Soprano Melina Schein and Tenor Nic Kyle are
both familiar with the stage and the works of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Schein is a New York native, now residing in the
Okanagan, who has numerous Broadway and Off-Broadway credits, including Phantom of the Opera. Kyle is an internationally
acclaimed tenor – now living in Abbotsford – who has performed in London’s West End and played Jesus in Jesus Christ
Superstar in Australia and New Zealand Tours.
Renowned Canadian music impresario Frederik Robert will serve as musical director on this project. Robert toured across Canada with the Canadian Tenors and Romanza Tenors, and is delighted to return to these communities as Music of the Night’s musical director.

Music of the Night will remind BC audiences why Andrew Lloyd Webber is the musical phenomenon he is known to be.
