Estes Park Sings This Weekend
The show will be staged Friday and Saturday nights, April 25 & 26, at Mountain View Bible Fellowship Church at the intersection of Highway 7 and Peak View Drive. Shows start at 7:30, doors will open for seating at 7:00 p.m.
Tickets for the show going fast and are available at Macdonald’s Book Shop, Linden/Bartels & Noe Insurance and the Estes Park Convention and Visitors Bureau. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased at the door, but advance purchase is recommended.
The theme this year is Estes Park Sings Around the World. There will be 35 songs from 17 countries tied together with the travels of the semi-disfunctional Flugge Family as they wander from country to country encountering music, dancing, and lots of laughter.
Just some of the songs will be: “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Top of the World,” Papa Loves Mambo,” “Sing, Sing, Sing,” a medley of Beatles hits, “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing,” “Three Little Maids,” “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “My Heart Will Go On,” “Lion Sleeps Tonight,” “Day-O,” and a host of patriotic songs.
The show’s Artistic Director is Michael Young, Music Director is Julie Varilek and Producer, Julie Phares.
Producer of the show Julie Phares said, “This year we’re at Mountain View Bible Fellowship Church which is a bit bigger venue and offers all kinds of opportunities for us to interact with the audience during the show.
Phares continued, “Rehearsals have been going very well and she added, “I guarantee anyone they will have a very, very enjoyable evening listening to some of the best musical talent in the Estes Valley. And the thing that is so cool about it-the proceeds all go to our kids.”
Something new this year is a brand new, hot off the press CD filled with songs from Estes Park Sings. Cost for the CD is $10 and they are available at Linden Bartels & Noe Insurance Co. and the Estes Park News office, 166 S. St. Vrain, across from the Holiday Inn. Cost for a CD is $10.
All of the money from CD sales also goes right to our future, the youth of our community in the form of scholarships. Thanks to community support last year, The Rotary Club of Estes Park had the privilege of presenting $33,000 to our graduating seniors of 2007. Get your Estes Park Sings tickets today, and help support our kids.
Proceeds from Estes Park Sings all go to the scholarship fund of the Estes Park Rotary Foundation. The goal this year is $15,000. See the next two pages.
