Kuna grad Luke Lords back in town, will perform in concert this week
Luke Lords, a 2000 graduate of Kuna High School, will be performing in concert on Thursday, July 28, at Welch Music, 12516 W. Fairview Ave., Meridian. Concert starts at 7 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets will be sold at the door for $6. Additional donations will be accepted.
The concert will consist of classic Broadway repertoire as well as new works written by current Broadway and Off-Broadway composers. Del Parkinson, head of the piano department at Boise State University, will be accompanying. This concert is being produced from New York City by Alina Gutierrez.
Lords, the son of Chris and Susan Lords, graduated from Kuna in 2000 and received a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho in choral conducting in 2006. He is currently working on a master’s degree in musical theatre performance at New York University in New York City. Proceeds of the concert will help Lords continue his studies at NYU.
Lords has appeared in the Off-Broadway show “Elevator Music,” which premiered at the York Theatre Company last April. Lords will also be seen in NYU’s production of “Sweet Smell of Success,” which will open this September.
