Lubbock, TX 79409
Our Annual Gala serves as the Chorale’s most important fundraiser for scholarships. This elegant evening event, with the audience seated at tables of eight, will be held in the lovely ballroom of the Texas Tech University McKenzie-Merket Center and will include a full dinner menu. Patrons will enjoy entertaining music performed by the Chorale, soloists, and guest artists.This year’s Gala theme celebrates a monumental piece of American musical theater. My Fair Lady is a musical based on George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion, with book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe. The story concerns Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl who takes speech lessons from professor Henry Higgins, a phoneticist, so that she may pass as a lady. The musical’s 1956 Broadway production was a notable critical and popular success. It set a record for the longest run of any show on Broadway up to that time. It was followed by a hit London production, a popular film version, and many revivals. My Fair Lady has been called “the perfect musical.” The Chorale looks forward to taking patrons on a journey through this wonderful show!
