Godspell-Student Matinee

March 27 @ 9:30 am - March 28 @ 11:30 am

“Godspell” is a theatrical celebration of the life of Jesus Christ, composed by Stephen Schwartz, the three-time Grammy and Academy Award winner who has written hit musicals “Pippin,” “Wicked” and “Children of Eden.” Grand Canyon University is thrilled to bring this Broadway sensation to Ethington Theatre, glorifying Jesus through beloved tunes and colorful dance. Among “Godspell’s” timeless pop songs, “Day by Day” lights up the stage as an international, chart-topping hit.

This on-stage religious experience takes place in modern-day New York and centers around well-known parables from The Gospel According to St. Matthew. Jesus recruits a group of disciples who, through joyous song and dance, perform these parables that are peppered with traditional hymns and lyrics. Jesus and his disciples amusingly teach and preach these lessons through pantomime, tomfoolery and vaudeville. Yet, as Jesus spreads his messages of friendship, loyalty, kindness and tolerance, he ultimately becomes the target of betrayal and is crucified.

Wednesday, March 27 – Thursday, March 28, 2019 | 9:30 AM

Masterworks Concert

April 4 @ 7:00 pm

Join GCU’s College of Fine Arts and Production for the annual Masterworks Concert featuring the Canyon Choral Society and Canyon Symphony Orchestra performing timeless musical pieces: Beethoven’s Mass in C Major, Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy and LUX: The Dawn From On High by Dan Forrest.

The evening will pay homage to the German composer Ludwig van Beethoven, who is revered for being the mastermind behind some of the greatest musical works in history. The concert concludes with LUX: The Dawn From On High by acclaimed composer Dan Forrest. His five-movement major work explores the various facets of light — from the promise of future light and hope of dawn, to the portrayal of light courageously shining in darkness and seeing the sun metaphorically as unconditional love that lights the whole sky.

Join us for a classical experience and celebration of preeminent musical pieces with a journey in time to enjoy Beethoven’s masterpieces from the early 1800s, and in the 21st century as we embrace Forrest’s 2018 LUX.
