The Center of Performing Arts (COPA) will open its summer show “SING – A Tour of Vocal Harmony” July 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 8 p.m. Take a journey while exploring vocal harmony in popular music. Starting in the 1930’s and ’40’s with Big Band and Swing music, see where vocal harmony began. You’ll hear favorites such as “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, “In The Mood” and “Mr. Sandman”. Transitioning into the ’50’s and ’60’s, you’ll recognize some toe tapping Doo Wop beats along with the smooth sounds of soul. The evening will close out with hits from the 70’s to the present. You’ll be singing along as you enjoy a night of music and entertainment for all ages.
The opening weekend dates, July 11 and 12, will be dinner theater evenings with a 7 p.m. dinner and 8 p.m. show time.
