New this season and for one night only …  It’s a Beaver Valley Choral Society Spring Spectacular!

BVCS Pops: The Music of Stage and Screen — presented on Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. at Rochester Area High School, 540 Reno Street, Rochester.

The BVCS principal choir, orchestra and Treble Youth Chorale combine, to feature the familiar music of stage and screen. Many of these shows are currently enjoying a revival on stage and in theaters.

Music theater selections include:

  • … plus a medley of familiar Walt Disney favorites.

Sharon R. Burchill is Artistic Director and Principal Conductor. The free concert is open to the public, but a goodwill offering is accepted.
