Cañon City High School welcomes new guests to annual Fall Pops Concert

Cañon City High School's annual Fall Pops Concert will feature some new guests on stage this year.

In addition to the school's Concert Choir and award-winning Encore! and Tiger Ladies, the senior class of the University of Northern Colorado's Musical Theatre Program, including 2013 CCHS graduate Alex Albrecht, will take to the stage at 7 p.m. Nov. 12 in the CCHS Auditorium at 1313 College Ave.

Tickets are $8 and are available now at the CCHS Activities Office.

"This is a really good opportunity; UNC is the best music theater school in the state," said director Todd Albrecht. "They only accept about 20 kids a year for music theater."

And more than half of those students will be here next week, offering Albrecht's classes a two-day workshop and master class, as well as performing with them in the Fall Pops Concert.

"This is a group of kids who are getting ready to go out and start careers in four months, and we get to work with them," Albrecht said. "I feel like we're getting a whole lot of great clinician time. My kids who are really thinking about going into performing, they can really see themselves in (the UNC students)."

Albrecht said the UNC seniors will join Encore! and Tiger Ladies in some special numbers prepared just for this concert, including numbers from Hamilton, Spring Awakening, and Ragtime.

"It's going to be an evening of amazing performances because these kids are really amazing," Albrecht said. "They are a wide range of voice types, they are suck kind kids, and they are so professional."

Proceeds from the event will be split between the UNC students' fund for their showcase performances in Los Angeles and New York, and Encore's fund for its annual competition in Denver.
