Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, Tina Turner and Michael Buble are all considered great performers, but it’s unlikely any of them will ever grace a stage at the University of Alabama.
What the University does have is the University of Alabama Show Choir, Resonance.
Resonance is a singing and dancing group that started in the fall of 2008. Going on its fourth year, Resonance has grown to be a 40-member male and female show choir.
The choir designs their shows “to excite their audience,” Rebecca Howard, the program’s producer, said.
“What’s unique about Resonance is that it doesn’t just only showcase our performers,” Howard said. “We also perform with a live band, which is mostly assembled with student musicians, so it gives those students a chance to perform in that type atmosphere as well as making our show better.”
The music selections for this year’s showcase will be a progression of music, with a wide variety of artists to try to please all audience members. Featured artists will include NSYNC, Lady Gaga, Fall Out Boy, Christina Aguilera and Michael Buble’s rendition of “Cry Me a River.”
Howard said this year’s performance is extra special.
“With a lot of leadership changes in the group, it’s really been the group members stepping up and taking lead to make this program great,” she said. “Not only will it be a great performance, but the collaborative ensembles that will perform during set change should really make the program come together.”
This year’s Resonance performance will be on Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the Bama Theatre. The show will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults.
