WNCC Vocal Music Presents 27th Annual 'A Gala Evening'

March 06, 2017
The Western Nebraska Community College Vocal Music program, under the direction of Dr. Imgyu Kang, presents the 27th annual "A Gala Evening" March 24-25 at the Gering Civic Center.
This year's theme will take the audience "Around the World," with familiar songs such as "Maria" from "West Side Story," the "James Bond Theme," and "Africa." The ever-popular event will also give a special nod to the college's 90th Anniversary.
"Since I have been here at WNCC, I've really enjoyed the diversity of my choir groups; students come here from places around the world such as Canada, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Ethiopia, Japan, and various Spanish speaking countries," said Kang. "For this year's gala, I wanted to honor that and focus on the many different cultures of the world. The songs each reflect a specific country's culture, which is why the audience will see more than 30 costumes on stage throughout the evening."
"A Gala Evening" begins with soloist performances during a social hour at 6 p.m., and dinner follows at 6:30 p.m. The dinner menu includes caesar salad, chicken marsala with garlic mashed potatoes and bacon sugar snap peas, and crème brulee.
