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.”

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.
