November saw a return for our ‘cabaret in the crypt night’ which seems to have taken on a status as legendary as our ‘cheese and wine’ rehearsals.
Whilst a church crypt is not everyone’s ideal venue when it comes to cabaret, our choir seems to have embraced it as a second home and it’s only fitting really, given that our very first choir rehearsals took place there, all the way back in 2011.
Choir renditions of ‘Moon River’, ‘Over the rainbow’, ‘Movin on up’, ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ sounded fabulous. And in-between the choir items, we had some fantastic solo performances. The ‘John/Dom/Lucy’ trio excelled themselves, as did Winston and Sheila in the first half. The ‘Monday Quintet’, named just a few minutes before they took to the stage, performed some foot-tapping folk music. Louisa and Gargie sang beautifully moving songs and John and Dominic returned to the stage to end the second half. The choir finished things off with encores of ‘Fix you’ and ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’.
Do come and join us for more crypt goings on next year!
