The Lee University School of Music’s Opera Theatre Workshop will present their annual fall musical revue on Sunday, November 14th at 3:00pm. All Together Now!, developed by Music Theatre International, was designed in the earlier months of the COVID-19 pandemic as a fundraiser for local theatres and educational groups to perform live in anticipation of the bounce back from social distanced rehearsing and Zoom performing. The revue features numbers from beloved classics and standard repertoire as well as newer titles making their splash onto the musical theatre scene. Titles featured in this weekend’s revue include Ragtime, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Sister Act, Les Misérables, Songs for a New World, Little Shop of Horrors, Oliver!, Into the Woods, Come From Away, Little Women, Guys and Dolls, Godspell, and Rent. Lee’s opera theatre workshop has been in existence on campus since 1998 and is under the direction of Mr. James Daniel Frost. The revue will be put on in the Buzz Oates Theatre in the Communication Arts Building on Lee campus. Tickets are required and can be reserved HERE.

Meet our next spotlight, Mary Nerren! Mary is a senior Piano Performance major from Johnson City, Tennessee. She has been involved in several ensembles, including Lee Singers, Wind Ensemble, and Symphony Orchestra. Over the next month, we’ll get to know a little more about her.
First, we asked her what drew her to Lee. She said, “My grandfather taught at Lee for several years and spoke very highly about the school, so I have known about it from a young age. I came to the International Piano Competition and Festival when I was a Junior in high school, and after interacting with the piano faculty and experiencing life on campus, I knew I wanted to apply!”
