The Young Ambassadors from Brigham Young University will perform the musical production The New Music Makers at Brigham Young University-Idaho Friday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the John W. Hart Auditorium.

The New Music Makers celebrates popular music and dance from the 1960s up to the present day. The show features hits by Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Carole King, Stevie Wonder, and Diamond Rio, as well as music from hit shows today. The Young Ambassadors, which includes a full 10-piece show band, guarantees that this 90-minute presentation will have something for everyone. Family audiences will not want to miss songs from the movies they grew up loving, along with favorite melodies from a variety of shows.

Over the past 37 years the Young Ambassadors have shared their talent and energy in more than 68 countries and have gained a strong reputation as wholesome, professional entertainers.

"For this show, especially," said artistic director Randall Boothe, "we have sifted through hundreds of songs and have selected the most fun, most positive, and most uplifting music-music that typifies wholesome, family entertainment. The New Music Makers accentuates the positive with music by some of the world's most celebrated composers and lyricists."
