Vocalists and pianists offer you an enchanted Harborside evening

Broadway tunes radiate through Plattsburgh Saturday night as four extraordinary professional artists — two vocalists, two pianists — present a rousing Curbside at Harborside drive-in event.

Husband-and-wife duo Bill and Brenda McColgan, singing sensations whose talents have been widely praised in professional venues in Boston and across the Northeast, are now treasured performers throughout the North Country’s musical theatre scene, including leading roles at Westport’s Depot Theatre, the Essex Community Theatre, and Plattsburgh’s Strand Theatre. When Mr. McColgan isn’t belting out Broadway tunes, he’s working as the CEO of Mountain Lake PBS!

Bill McColgan

This Saturday, the singers will present a litany of Broadway’s best solos and duets, as they join forces with piano pros Jennifer Moore and Rose Chancler. The music includes the wickedly funny “A Little Priest” from Sweeney Todd, and the hauntingly emotional “All I Ask of You” from The Phantom of the Opera.

Brenda McColgan

In addition to the best of Broadway, the program will also include classical pieces beloved by children and the young at heart around the world, two favorite works arranged for four-hands piano and narrator:  Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Camille Saint-Sean’s Carnival of the Animals. The McColgans and concert organizer Benjamin Pomerance will narrate these timeless treasures.

The musicians will perform on the stage of the city’s portable bandshell, stationed in the parking lot near Dock Street, close to the Plattsburgh City Marina.
