The Young Ambassadors made their worldwide debut at the Osaka 1970 World Expo, and have been entertaining audiences across the globe ever since. The group recently returned from a three week tour in Southern Africa where they performed their exciting new show, Harmony: the Music of Life.
A must-see compilation of some of America's best-loved musical scores, Harmony depicts scenes from life's most significant moments, highlighting each experience through popular music from Michael Bublé, Stephen Schwartz, Benny Goodman, and more. With its astounding vocal talent and stunning choreography, Harmony puts a smile on audiences' faces that lasts the entire show. The production's costumes brighten the stage and transport audiences through every stage of life, from childhood fairytales, teenage years, falling in love, raising a family, and growing older. Harmony's spirited 90-minute showcase provides an entertaining evening out for family members of all ages.
The Young Ambassadors are accompanied by a live ten piece show band that features some of the finest performers from Brigham Young University. These musicians' animated performances enhance each number so audiences always get what they came for: a night of talent and entertainment in every facet of the performance.
The Young Ambassadors brought their show Harmony to performance halls throughout the West during the 2011 - 2012 season. They also toured seventeen cities in seven southern states during the summer of 2012.
