Past Concerts - Valentine's Sumptuous and Songs

Cantorum Choir

Date - Sunday 13th February 2005
Event - Valentine's Sumptuous and Songs
Venue - Liston Hall Marlow
     

Everyone who attended agreed they’d had an excellent evening of entertainment and good food at the Valentines Sumptuous Supper and Songs, held at Liston Hall, Marlow, on Sunday 13th February. Sally Stafford conducted Cantorum, and Gordon Collins accompanied on the piano.

The hall was decorated with hearts and balloons and the tables with candles and flowers. Robert Howes, our Master of Ceremonies, introduced the choir, who started the evening with a number from Cabaret, “Come to the Cabaret”. The following solos, duets and trios demonstrated the range and capabilities of this talented choir. The first soloist was Genevieve Usher, who gave a very polished performance of “The Laughing Song” from Die Fledermaus. Also in the first half was “Stardust” sung by Richard Ratcliff, “The Clouds began to Scatter” sung in Russian by Tamara Migrina and an original and highly amusing version of “Three Little Maids from School” which included a part for a tenor!

In the interval the audience were treated to a sumptuous supper prepared by Catherine Arnold, who is also a choir member.

A raffle during the interval raised £500 for Reverend 'Lokki' Abhayaratne, the Anglican Archdeacon of Galle, and his Tsunami Sri Lanka Relief Fundfor Schools in Galle, Sri Lanka. This donation has already been put directly into the fund’s bank account in Galle. All projects and purchases are being dealt with directly by Lokki, and none of the money is used for administrative costs. If you would like to contribute to this excellent charity, contact Rick Terry, (whose daughter-in-law’s mother is Lokki’s cousin!) on 01628 5214000 or 01628 521400 FREE

After the meal, Malcolm and Marianne Stork opened the second half of the concert with an amusing rendition of Fascinating Aida’s “Jogging song”, which was followed by the choir singing the lively and rhythmical “in the Mood” by Joe Garland - the Glenn Miller favourite. Seven beautifully sung items followed, including Gershwin’s “Can’t help lovin’ Dat man” sung by Val Snapes, “Come into the Garden Maud” sung by Derek Beaven and a selection of Barber Shop songs.

£500 was raised for the Tsunami Relief Fund for Schools in Galle Sri Lanka
