Attributing a variety of classic artists, BYU Young Ambassadors share their talents along with music sung by many of the “greats”
Celebrating the musical hits that have appeared on stage, screen and radio, the BYU Young Ambassadors present their upcoming production “Thank You For The Music.” This performance features a wide range of classics by such artists as Queen, ABBA and Whitney Houston, as well as songs from popular musicals “Guys and Dolls,” “Wicked” and “Newsies.” The group will also highlight music by contemporary artists such as Ed Sheeran, BTS, Disney and more.
The BYU Young Ambassadors’ artistic director Nathan Balser emphasized the important role that music plays in our lives. He said, “Whether humming along in our car or screaming aloud in the shower, the songs of the radio, TV, movies and the Broadway stage have made us, in part, who we are.”
The BYU Young Ambassadors have shared their talents across the globe and have performed everywhere from Brazil to South Africa to Cambodia. The ensemble has also performed for influential individuals, including the prime minister of India, the queen of Thailand and the king and queen of Jordan. The ensemble of 29 students has shared their talents across the globe, singing and dancing their way through 67 different nations.
By means of dance, music and theatre, the BYU Young Ambassadors offer their unique view of American culture. With “Thank You For the Music,” Balser said, “The BYU Young Ambassadors present the songs by which we live our lives.”
