The Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra’s “Positively WICKED” 2016-2017 Season, sponsored by CHI St. Joseph Health, is conjuring up a show stopping season finale and individual tickets are now on sale for the April performance with a very special discount for a limited time. Music Director Marcelo Bussiki promises fun for everyone at this upcoming concert.

The subscription season closes in positively wicked style with “A Little Bit WICKED” on April 30, 2017, at 5pm in Rudder Auditorium as Bussiki and the BVSO present a decidedly pops performance. Featuring the bewitching Wicked Divas, who played Elphaba and Glinda in the Broadway production of the Tony Award®-winning musical Wicked. These two talented vocalists will sing break out hits from the wildly popular production as well as many other Broadway favorites.

“It was a conscious decision that we really needed one program that was completely ‘pops’ to give diversity to the season,” explained Bussiki. “I think it’s going to be lots of fun with selections from Broadway shows such as Chicago, Phantom, and Wicked. It will be great, and something to bring in an even broader audience.”

“A Little Bit WICKED” will be at Rudder Auditorium on the Texas A&M University Campus. Program selections include, Kander: Introduction and All That Jazz from Chicago; Webber: Think Of Me, from Phantom of the Opera; Horner & Jennings: My Heart Will Go On, from Titanic; Schwartz: Popular, Defying Gravity, and For Good, from WICKED; and many more Broadway hits!

Guest artists are: Wicked Divas, Alli Mauzey, and Dee Roscioli.
