Of Musical Sing-a-Long will take place this year at a different location and with less audience. AVROTROS informs NU.nl at the fifteenth edition of the annual event that 100 people may be present due to the coronavirus.
With a hundred people, the 1.5 meter distance can be maintained. It is still being examined whether people can and may sing along to the musical numbers that will be performed on Sunday 30 August. Singing along in groups is currently prohibited, because the coronavirus is spread more easily if possible.
Also the location of the Musical Sing-a-Long has changed: instead of in Amsterdam, the event now takes place in the open air theater in Soest. “An intimate and atmospheric setting has been chosen,” said the spokesperson for AVROTROS.
Frits Sissing and Romy Monteiro present the event, which looks back on the highlights of the past fifteen years, but also looks ahead to the new musical season. Songs are sung from among others Beauty and the Beast, Soldier of Orange, Crumb in Saturday Night Fever. The performances are assisted by a live orchestra and the choir of Dutch Event Choir.
Of Musical Sing-a-Long can be seen at AVROTROS on NPO1 on Sunday 30 August at 8:25 PM.
