Lyric Theatre Singers

Energetic choreography is a hallmark of Lyric Singers performances

Lyric’s Founder, Bob Bachelor, is leading the group as Musical Director and Co-Director alongside longtime collaborator, Cathy Burns. They remain well-surrounded by the likes of Martin Kaller (Assistant Musical Director), Chad Linsley (Rehearsal Accompanist) and Jonathan Patterson (Guest Choreographer).

“I think Bob and I have a unique and complementary partnership. We have known each other for almost 40 years and had done many musicals together prior to working as co-directors for The Lyric Theatre Singers. We each bring our own strengths and styles together to create something that ends up quite cohesive in the end. Although it is a huge challenge to create and conceive a new show year after year, we inspire each other,” says Cathy Burns, Broadway Dreams Co-Director.

This production will feature a talented ensemble cast of dynamic performers of diverse backgrounds, who bring enthusiasm and vocal prowess to each carefully selected number. From touching ballads to toe-tapping tunes, and a few show stopping numbers, Broadway Dreams has something for all audiences.

Designers Amber Hood (Lighting) and Rob Denton (Sound) will return to support the show’s vision. The Singers will be accompanied by musicians; Chris Barillaro (Keyboard/Synth), Levi Dover (Bass), Guillaume Pilote (Percussion), Matthew Souaid (Woodwinds/Reeds), in addition to rehearsal pianist, Chad Linsley at the piano.
