‘It’s About Time’ for winter song-and-dance show

Clock starts ticking for February concert Choreographers Billy and Mishka

Dec. 20, 2018 LA GRANDE, Ore. –  World-renowned choreographers Billy Rugh and Michelle Bentonreturn to La Grande in January to create and rehearse dance numbers with Eastern Oregon University’s Chamber Choir for its annual popular music show Feb. 1 and 2.

The song-and-dance show, titled “It’s About Time,” will feature popular hits about days of the week, seasons of the year, times of day, and seasons of life. EOU Music Professor Peter Wordelman directs the show, coordinating student vocalists while fellow faculty member Luke McKern arranges and directs the instrumental ensemble. Wordelman said the setlist covers pop, rock, Broadway and other classic tunes.

“It’s always a really high-energy show,” Wordelman said. “Billy and Mishka’s experience and talent bring our students up to the next level.”

The  team came to EOU for the first time last year, and boast a repertoire that includes America’s Got Talent, the Disneyland Resort, and a host of television and live dance specials. They’ve worked with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, Angel City Chorale, Culver City Chamber Orchestra, and with artists such as LeAnn Rimes and Lily Tomlin. Their work has been performed in Canada, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina, and Mexico.

Red Cross Drug Store sponsors “It’s About Time,” and tickets go on sale at the downtown location starting Jan. 7. Tickets will also be available at the EOU Bookstore and online at eou.edu/music.
