Lisa Vroman, Erie Phil Bring 'A Night Off Broadway' with CODA
The Erie Philharmonic has put together a stellar evening called "CODA: A Night Off Broadway."
Friday, June 29
In case the Great White Way isn't quite feasible for you this summer, the Erie Philharmonic has put together a stellar evening of cocktails, culinary creations and, of course, musical entertainment, all packaged up as "CODA: A Night Off Broadway."
Set this year at Erie's incomparable Kahkwa Club, with a clubhouse boasting lush views of a perfectly manicured golf course made tantalizing by sunset, the night promises a variety of chic delights. Erie Phil Musical Director Daniel Meyer will be on hand as host of the evening. The party starts with signature handcrafted drinks at the open bar, plus delectable dishes provided by the club's own kitchen.
Of course, the main event is an hour-long cabaret-style performance by vocal phenom Lisa Vroman, who starred on Broadway for several years as Christine Daaé, the challenging, soaring female lead in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. Her incredible body of work in musical theater over nearly three decades has garnered her numerous awards and recognition from industry behemoths, including Cameron Mackintosh and Harold Prince.
After Vroman's exquisite performance, guests can take part in an exciting live auction, which will feature many alluring items, including a pair of 18K diamond hoop earrings, donated by Dahlkemper's Jewelry Connection. There will also be a silent auction for event-goers to try and snag a number of significant prizes.
Undoubtedly, Vroman's luminous presence and pure soprano voice is the centerpiece of CODA, bringing an authentic taste of the bright lights of New York City here to Erie, but she is just one reason why Erie will turn out for this sparkling, glamorous evening which celebrates the city, the long-awaited summer, and our area's commitment to musical excellence. — Cara Suppa
