Tickets are available at the door — $12 for general admission, $10 for students and seniors.
Classical selections will include songs by Schubert, Mozart, Rachmaninoff and Samuel Barber’s setting of three poems by James Joyce.
The show music section features songs from “South Pacific,” “A Funny Thing,” “Lost in the Stars,” “The Fantasticks,” “Fiddler” and other great musicals of the Broadway stage.
