The Chorale presents an evening of music by one of the masters of American musical theater.

Join us for an enchanting evening of music from this true American genius, with featured selections from his musicals by the Chorale and in solos by members of the Chorale. But you better get your tickets early, because “Another Hundred People Just Got Off of the Train”! And as you head into the performance, keep a look out for beans…“They May Be Magic.”

Follies is an affectionate, melodious and in-depth reflection upon life and American musical theater. It’s 1971 and Dimitri Weissmann is hosting a reunion of his ex-Follies performers. We watch them as they relive the follies from their past and create new ones along the way. This lively reunion is a large ensemble show with excellent songs and dances for lead, supporting and featured performers.
