Overtures Piano Bar and the London Musical Theatre Orchestra are to present a riotous evening of musical theatre sing-a-long for everyone at the Bishopsgate Institute on 12 May 2019.
Overtures Piano Bar – London’s only sing-along piano bar dedicated to musical theatre – is travelling from its home in Marble Arch to Liverpool Street for a one-off celebration at Bishopsgate Institute. Accompanied by the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, and conducted by Freddie Tapner (Wicked, Victoria Apollo Theatre; Jersey Boys, UK Tour; Mack and Mabel, Hackney Empire), it is guaranteed to be a riotous evening, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds and, most importantly, all singing levels.
For one night only, guests will be able to sing along to their favourite musical theatre songs in this exciting celebration of musical theatre. The evening, hosted by Paul Branch and Maureen Rejali – the presenters of London’s much-loved, award-winning musical theatre radio show, Sunday Show Tunes – will be unplugged and spontaneous with just the crowd, the orchestra and the show tunes.
This riotous communal sing-along night will feature songs from musicals, ranging from popular classics such as Les Misérables and Wicked to the much-loved musicals of Stephen Sondheim and everything in between.
Managing Director of Overtures Piano Bar Ray Rackham comments, We opened our doors to our home at Marble Arch in January, and I have been astounded by the appetite for a dedicated, musical theatre sing-along bar. Nights at Overtures are like no other; as soon as the pianist starts playing everyone in the bar joins in. Now it is time to step it up a notch, and I am delighted that Freddie Tapner of the London Musical Theatre Orchestra and the fantastic team at Bishopsgate Institute have welcomed us for this orchestral evening of Overtures magic. Come along and join in the fun in one of London’s most beautiful buildings, and with the world’s best musical theatre orchestra providing the soundtrack it is going to be a night everyone will remember.
