University’s annual Musical Menus, a collection of Broadway songs sung by
students and faculty, will be performed on Friday and Saturday, March 11-12, in
the R.C. and Celeste Wahlert Atrium. Seating is at 6 p.m., followed by the
performance and dinner at 6:30 p.m.
Musical Menus includes several selections from a variety of
Broadway musicals, while audience members enjoy a five-course gourmet meal. The
event has been referred to as the best Broadway revue in the Dubuque area.
“We try to have a mix of drama and pop,” said LaDonna
Manternach, chair and associate professor of the Clarke Music Department.
“Students of all ages are represented in vocal and instrumental music. This is
our last big fundraiser for a trip to Germany and the Czech Republic this
summer, so the more people, the more it helps. We’d love to fill the place up.”
