Brigham Young University presents The Young Ambassadors
January 18th 2020, 7pm
Star Valley High School Auditorium
The BYU Young Ambassadors is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the ensemble’s first appearance in the international spotlight. In the 50 years since that premiere at Expo ’70 in Osaka, Japan, 1,700 members of the Young Ambassadors have traveled thousands of miles, visited 68 countries, and met millions of new friends who long remember the company’s fast-paced choreography and beloved melodies, which have captured the hearts of young and old through half a century of tours.
The new Young Ambassadors show, Souvenirs, celebrates friends around the globe whose associations have significantly influenced Young Ambassadors company members at home and in faraway places. Souvenirs features numbers from Broadway’s Crazy for You, Dreamgirls, Bandstand, Dear Evan Hansen, and Spamalot and songs from the movies Coco, The Greatest Showman, Frozen, and Hercules. International hits from the Beatles, Journey, and Stevie Wonder round out the ensemble’s lineup for a memorable journey through the past 50 years.
The Young Ambassadors not only features 20 outstanding singers and dancers from BYU but also includes 10 of BYU’s finest instrumentalists. The Young Ambassadors Show Band adds dynamic energy and class through accompaniment and three show-stopping favorites.
The Young Ambassadors is produced by the School of Music in the College of Fine Arts and Communications at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
