Round Rock Community Choir’s 2007 Swanee Annual Variety Show
Digital backdrops, thrust stage designed to provide enhanced audience experience
Date: 4/19/2007  
Location: Shoreline Christian Center
15201 Burnet Road , Austin, Texas (Map)
Cost: $15 adults, $12 students and seniors

Forty tap dancing, red-haired “Annie” characters are among the many highlights of the 21st annual Round Rock Community Choir’s variety show “Swanee.” This year’s show will combine the tradition of the choir’s outstanding vocal performance with advanced-technology “digital backdrops”, providing attendees with a show unlike any previous Round Rock Community Choir performance.

This year’s show includes four musical sequences: People in Motion, Laugh Until You Cry, Spirituals, and You Are What You Wear.

“This year’s show will be unlike any previous performance from the choir,” said Choir Founder and Director Dr. Linda Bolding. “In addition to digital backdrops, the Shoreline venue has a ‘thrust stage’ which extends out into the audience, giving the audience a chance to be literally seated among the performers, providing a more intimate performance. The view for the audience, along with the advanced technology being used for digital backdrops, is going to be amazing.”  

Nodie Murphy, the choir’s choreographer, said the shape and layout of the stage will also make this year’s performance different from the past 20 years of Swanee performances.

“We are able to use really fresh dances steps and movement that we’ve never done before,” Murphy said. “This kind of creativity will really draw the audience in and keep their toes tapping all the way through.”

Tickets can be purchase online or by calling 255-5458. Tickets will be available at the door.

“The City of Round Rock can be very proud to call the choir its own,” Dr. Bolding said. “One doesn’t need to travel far to hear some of the finest voices in Texas.”
