CRESTVIEW — Show tunes fans, rejoice!

Schola Cantorum's May 5 spring concert is heavy on favorites from the Great White Way in addition to several more traditional selections.

The Northwest Florida State College-based community choir's Crestview performance opens with Louis Vierne's "Kyrie Eleison" before selections by Schubert, Mozart and John David's lyrical "You Are the New Day."

Director John Leatherwood then turns to musical theatre with Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's classic "Some Enchanted Evening" from "South Pacific."

Numbers from Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera," "Jekyll and Hyde," "Man of La Mancha," "Les Misérables," and "Guys and Dolls" follow.

The concert closes with the Academy Award-winning "When You Believe" from "The Prince of Egypt."

Admission is free, though donations are accepted to help support the choir.
