TAHLEQUAH – Take a nostalgic musical journey through seven decades of American history with Irving Berlin’s I Love A Piano on Thursday, Oct. 9 at 7:30 p.m. at the Northeastern State University Center for the Performing Arts.
Featuring the music of one of this country’s most prolific and beloved composers, I Love A Piano is the second show in the Sequoyah Institute’s 23rd Annual Galaxy of Stars Series. The show is sponsored by Go Ye Village.
With six actors and over 60 of Berlin’s enduring and popular favorites, this spectacular show captures the spirit of America from the Ragtime rhythms of the early 20th century through the swinging sophistication of the 1920s and ‘30s, through the sentimental songs that inspired a nation during two world wars to the innocent optimism of the 1950s.
The show features times classics, such as “White Christmas,” “God Bless America,” “Puttin’ On The Ritz” and “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” that do more than define the music of a generation, they define the music of our country.
Tickets for Irving Berlin’s I Love A Piano are $20 for adults, $18 for NSU alumni, $16 for NSU employees, $14 for senior citizens, $12 for groups of 10 or more, $10 for students and children, and $5 for NSU students. To purchase tickets, contact the NSU Box Office at (918) 458-2075.
Additional funding for the 23rd Annual Galaxy of Stars Series is provided by the Oklahoma Arts Council, the Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.
