About Young Ambassadors
Their new show, THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC, is a celebration of the great musical hits of radio, stage and screen. The BYU Young Ambassadors present the songs by which we live our lives. 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. Presented in a fast-paced and tender-hearted musical escapade, fit for the whole family, Thank You For The Music mixes a touch of the classics by Queen, ABBA, Whitney Houston, “Guys and Dolls,” “Wicked” and “Newsies” with a touch of the new by Ed Sheeran, BTS, Disney, and more.
Since entering the world stage at Japan’s Expo ’70, the Young Ambassadors have performed their vibrant blend of song and dance in 67 nations of the world. Their audiences have included the prime minister of India, the queen of Thailand, and the king and queen of Jordan. Most recently the group has toured in Brazil, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Nauvoo, Illinois, China, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
As Brigham Young University’s elite song and dance ensemble, the Young Ambassadors share the magic of storytelling through contemporary music, dance, and theatre. Comprised of 29 student singers, dancers, actors, and stage technicians, the ensemble delivers a fast-paced showcase inspired by American Musical Theatre, Rock and Pop music. These talented performers offer a fresh view of America’s culture and ways of life.
