‘Nostalgia’, an online show by the Abu Dhabi Choral Group, is a performance that represents a global collaboration of 48 of Abu Dhabi Choral Group’s top artists from 15 different countries, available for online viewing exclusively by The Arts Centre at NYU Abu Dhabi.
The Abu Dhabi Choral Group is the longest running amateur music group in the UAE, proudly presenting ‘Nostalgia’, an online show featuring their greatest hits at The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi on Monday, December 14 at 8pm (UAE time, GMT +4).
“With Nostalgia, we’ve threaded together a variety of our favourite numbers that bring back great memories from ADCG’s past. It promises to take the audience on an emotional journey back in time to when live performances were a possibility and a joy”, says Chairperson of ADCG and Musical Director, Caroline Kelly.
“Members chose to reprise their favourite songs and many of these digitally-mastered performances include original archived footage from the original ADCG performances. ADCG cannot wait to be able to bring live music and theatre to audiences again in the future.”
The livestream of ADCG’s Nostalgia (viewable on Facebook, YouTube and nyuad-artscenter.org) will feature 48 of their top members from 15 countries, who have played a large role in building the group’s reputation and large fan base. They will perform popular songs from favorite ADCG shows including 9-to-5 and Legally Blonde, which has enthralled UAE audiences and left an indelible mark on Abu Dhabi theater over the past decade.
