DARIEN, Conn. -- The Greenwich Public School Honor Choir and Darien High School Tudors will be performing in “Will & Anthony: A Broadway Holiday" on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 8 p.m. in the Palace Theatre, 61 Atlantic St., Stamford.
In the tradition of Bing Crosby’s Christmas specials, “A Broadway Holiday,” which stars recording artists, actors and concert performers Will and Anthony Nunziata, celebrates the joys of life, music and family.
The concert includes fresh takes on classic Christmas standards, along with Broadway hits and Italian music.
Songs such as “Joy to the World,” “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” ”Silent Night,” “The Christmas Song,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” and “O Sole Mio” are expected to be included.
"We are both thrilled about our upcoming concert at The Palace," said Will Nunziata. "Born and raised in New York, with a lot of family in Connecticut, we're excited to make new friends and ‘family’ with a concert we are tailor-creating for the Palace.”
Christopher Andrade, director of the Darien High School Tudors, said the group was excited to be part of the show.
“The Palace is a fantastic venue, and the concert is a great opportunity for our students to reach a wider audience while working with some great professionals in the field,” he said. “We’re honored to have been asked to be on the show, and are looking forward to a terrific evening.”
Jessica Punchatz, director of the Greenwich Public School Honor Choir, echoed Andrade’s sentiments.
“The Greenwich Public Schools Honor Choir is a select group of students between fifth and eighth grade,” she said. “They are thrilled to have the opportunity to sing with Will and Anthony. This opportunity will not only give the students the ability to sing in a professional performance and to meet professional musicians, which inspire them as singers, but this concert has also allowed the GPS Honor Choir to explore the Broadway style of choral music and arrangements.”
Nunziata emphasized the importance of injecting youth into the show.
"To have two local choirs join us on stage is going to be amazing,” he said. “In these tricky times, it's often the faces and voices of kids that uplift spirits in a moment.”
