The theme of these concerts and two June concerts is movies and musicals. Some songs featured include Sound of Music medley, Memory from the musical Cats, Unchained Melody from the movie Ghost, You’ve Got a Friend in Me from the film Toy Story, and a medley of songs from the popular musical and film Les Misérables.
