GVT Music Director Kermit Medsker will host this evening of holiday entertainment featuring Allie Richardson with accompanist Jeff Haught.
Together Richardson and Haught will be performing musical theater tunes, along with Christmas classics such as “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “I’ll be Home for Christmas.”
The evening will feature “some surprise mash-ups, a classical tune and fun stories interwoven throughout,” said Richardson.
Richardson is set to graduate from Ball State University in Muncie, IN, in 2016 with a BFA in Musical Theatre. The Winfield native has been singing since elementary school. She joined General Admission, a show choir from Winfield High, and has been performing ever since.
“When I saw the positive impact the choir and my own performance had on people, I knew this was not a short-term activity, but rather my calling in life,” Richardson said.
Haught, who will accompany Richardson on piano, has been with her almost as long as she has been singing. He was her kindergarten music teacher, trained her through middle and high school and convinced her to audition for the Ball State Music Program.
