PALM SPRINGS, Calif., April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Palm Springs Cultural Center is bringing America's original Glee Club - The Young Americans – back to Palm Springs – with an all-new song and dance extravaganza designed to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the group's founding in 1962. Two performances, featuring the latest generation of Young Americans, and some Young Americans alumni, will take place at the Palm Springs High School Auditorium on May 12th and 13th. The shows feature a wide range of music, from traditional choral music to the latest Broadway hits, and every type of dance you can imagine – from classical ballet to modern hip hop. It's fun-filled entertainment the whole family will love.
"We are thrilled to be able to share this once-in-a-lifetime event with Coachella Valley residents," said Ric Supple, Chairman of the Board for The Palm Springs Cultural Center.
The Young Americans were the first performance group to blend choreography with choral music, and now serve as the oldest and largest youth music advocacy group in the world. They currently operate seven International Outreach Tours each year, operate The Young Americans College of the Performing Arts in Southern California, and bring National Music Outreach Workshops into high schools throughout the world.
With financial support from the City of Palm Springs and the Palm Springs Cultural Center, Palm Springs High School hosted a Music Outreach Workshop with The Young Americans in January of 2012. Over 200 local high school and middle school students attended the workshop. The Golden Anniversary Celebration and Show brings The Young Americans back to the Palm Springs High School in a triumphant celebration of the performing arts!
