ASO3

Broadway is coming home. On May 31st, the Astoria Symphonic Choir performs at Astoria’s Trinity Lutheran Church, which is located a block from the roadway that stretches from Elmhurst to the LIC’s Socrates Sculpture Park and is called “Broadway.” Artistic Director Adam Eggleston leads the group through selections from musicals — My Fair Lady, Guys & Dolls, The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, Damn Yankees, Anything Goes, and West Side Story. Plus, there will be some extra excitement in the air as the choir’s sister group, the Astoria Symphony Orchestra, has just announced that Maestro David Štech, who has been the resident conductor since 2011, will be the music director for the twelfth concert season (2014-15).

Details: Broadway, Astoria Trinity Lutheran Church, 31-18 37th Street, Astoria, May 31st, 8 pm, $20-$25 at the door/$15-$20 in advance.
