The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) has partnered with The Carnegie for a dress rehearsal of their latest production to benefit the NKY Chamber’s Regional Youth Leadership Program (RYL).
Northern Kentucky’s largest multidisciplinary art venue, The Carnegie (1028 Scott Street, Covington) will host a performance of the timeless classic THE SOUND OF MUSIC at 7:30 p.m., Friday January 28.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the story of an exuberant young housekeeper living in Austria as she brings music and joy to a broken family … Only to face danger as the Nazis take power.
Carnegie’s production THE SOUND OF MUSIC features performances of classic tracks including “My Favorite Things”, Sixteen Going on Seventeen “and” Climb Every Mountain “. This family favorite tells a meaningful story in pleasant surroundings for all ages.
âIt’s fantastic to be able to once again support the RYL program and one of the major venues in Northern Kentucky while watching a theater classic,â said Ann Marie Whelan, RYL Program Director. âThe Carnegie has been a longtime friend of the RYL program and the funds raised each year through this special performance will allow us to continue to develop the future leaders our region needs to thrive. “
RYL uses the community as a classroom to develop the leadership skills of high school students in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The experiential nature of RYL provides the opportunity for unique collaborations among a diverse group of students across the tri-state who attend public, private and home schools in urban, rural and suburban schools.
Tickets are available for $ 23 each or $ 80 for a family pack of four; tickets can also be purchased for a donation for anyone unable to attend. For the safety of guests and staff, participants are requested to wear a mask inside the Carnegie. The event is sponsored by Amazon. The sound of music is presented by special arrangement with CONCORD Theatricals, Inc.
