A socially distanced singalong
My Favorite Things: Songs from The Sound of Music
May 8, 2021, at 7:30 p.m.
The Happiest Sound in All the World
Help us fill the stadium with the sound of music on May 8, 2021, for a socially distanced singalong. My Favorite Things: Songs from The Sound of Music features members of the principal cast from HGO’s originally planned full production of The Sound of Music, which the company had to cancel. Guests will get the chance to see dazzling Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique as Maria and hometown favorite and baritone Michael Mayes as Captain von Trapp, along with the HGO Chorus and Orchestra. De Bique had been scheduled to make her HGO debut in the musical opposite Mayes, who was last seen at HGO in the 2019-20 season as Rigoletto.
While we did not get to perform this classic musical on the Brown Stage, we are delighted to bring its beloved classic songs to the University of Houston’s TDECU Stadium.
