Thrill, and perhaps shed a tear or two, to the choral majesty of Orpheus reprising Cohan's "Grand Old Flag," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," and "Over There;" the heartbreaking "Madame Jeanette," Thomas Juneau's "The Parting Glass," and old time favorites "It's a Long Way to Tipperary," Roses of Picardy," "Keep the Home Fires Burning," and "Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag."

In true Orphean fashion, there will be something to delight everyone in this performance including, the stirring "Di quella pira" from Verdi's "Il Trovatore," their Doo Woppers rendition of "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," the great Rogers and Hart love song, "With a Song in My Heart," and much more!

Tickets are $15 in advance and $25 at the door. Seniors and students may purchase tickets at the door for $18. To purchase advance tickets, visit www.ridgewoodorpheusclub.org.
