Invitation to 'Catch a Rising Star' in performance
“Flash, Bam, Curtain” is the title of the musical program Lauren Elizabeth Gronvall will present on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m., at Westlake Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road. For a second year the Westlake-Westshore Arts Council is sponsoring “Catch a Rising Star … Baldwin Wallace Music Theater in Recital.”
Gronvall, a BW music theater major, performs her senior recital, a self-produced program displaying the musical theater expertise acquired during her years at BW. She describes her program as “casual cabaret with classic and contemporary music theatre songs, standards and a little pop/rock.”
Included in her repertoire of songs will be "Out of the Blue," "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend," "I Can't Make You Love Me," "Call Me Irresponsible" and "Listen to My Heart."
“Flash, Bam, Curtain” is a line from the Stephen Sondheim musical "Merrily We Roll Along." After performing as Gussie in that musical at The Beck Center with her class, Gronvall chose the line for her recital program title.
This unique performance experience, which provides an opportunity to enjoy a young, talented, trained performer, is offered by the WWAC free to the community at its Quarterly Event program.
