Brigham Young University’s popular Young Ambassadors will perform “The New American Songbook” in the de Jong Concert Hall, Harris Fine Arts Center, at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 11-12. The group will also perform a matinee Saturday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m. in the same location.

Tickets at $10 or $7 with a BYU or student ID can be purchased at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, by calling (801) 422-4322 or by visiting performances.byu.edu.

"This variety stage production will celebrate popular music and dance of the 1960s up to the present day, and will feature familiar tunes that will no doubt have the audience tapping their toes and humming along," said director Randy Boothe.

The show includes hits by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Diamond Rio, Billy Joel and some of the most exciting moments from Disney and Broadway today.

The ensemble, under the direction of Randy Boothe, will tour Southern California during winter semester and will visit Australia this summer.

Since entering the world stage at Japan's Expo '70, the Young Ambassadors have performed their vibrant blend of song and dance in 56 nations of the world. Their audiences have included the prime minister of India, the queen of Thailand and the king and queen of Jordan.
