Virtual fundraiser will aid Young Voices of Colorado choir

Posted

Thirty years ago, founder Jena Dickey of Littleton gathered 20 young people in her neighborhood and began a children's choir, Young Voices of Colorado. It has grown to include almost 200 singers from the five metro counties and has touched an additional 2,000 children through outreach in this area and around the world. On Oct. 3, the choir will celebrate with a virtual fundraising gala, although the young singers will probably not appear in person until 2021. The choir's home venue is the Newman Center at University of Denver, where a live concert will hopefully be possible. For information about the October concert and the program, see: youngvoices.org or call 303-797-7464.

Theater tonight (hooray!)

The Candlelight Dinner Playhouse, 4747 Marketplace Drive, Johnstown, opens the theater season with a production of Lerner and Loewe's beloved “Camelot” from Sept. 3 to Oct. 25. This is a “newly imagined” version, with a cast of eight. Bob Hoppe will play King Arthur and Pat Payne directs. Candlelight will have reduced audience size and extra cleaning between performances for safety. Tickets start at $55.50, including dinner and show. Dinner seating at 6 p.m.; show at 7:30. Call 970-744-3747 Tuesday-Friday, 10-5 and Saturday, 12-5 or visit ColoradoCandlelight.com.
