SUU’s Department of Music is performing their 4th Annual Rock and Roll Choir Concert Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – The Music of Elton John with special guests, The Red Rockers.
The performance will be held on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in the Sharwan Smith Center Ballroom.
This annual Rock and Roll choir concert has become a favorite of students, professors, and the community alike. It brings the audience together to enjoy the beloved sounds of the past while allowing the audience to see how the tunes have shaped the music that we hear today.
Dr. Krystal McCoy, Director of Choirs at SUU, shares, “”The choir looks forward to rockin’ out each year. Come sing some Elton John with us!”
Elton John has produced more than 30 albums, sold over 300 million records, and has had more than fifty Top 40 songs. His work on popular music, musicals, and Disney movie scores makes him one of the most beloved musicians in the world.
Michael D’Orazio, senior music education major, shares, “There are so many great songs that we will perform! My favorite song to perform would be between Rocket Man, Crocodile Rock, or Pinball Wizard. Since it’s the music of Elton John, there are going to be songs that everybody will recognize including music from musicals like The Lion King, Tommy, and Aida.”
From Elton John himself, “Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” Join us for a few hours of healing, rocking out to the music of Elton John with SUU’s 4th Annual Rock and Roll Choir Concert with special guests, The Red Rockers.
