Canyon Singers, Sedona's community chorus, invite you to their annual fall cabarets on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 2 and 7 p.m. at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church parish hall.
According to Music Director Sandra Reid, the theme for this year's cabarets is "Variety, the Spice of Life."
That theme includes the many delectable desserts concert-goers will enjoy as they watch each performance.
Canyon Singers mixed voice chorus will sing selections including a snappy Irving Berlin medley, an enchanting Brahms madrigal, the lively I've Got to Wander, Fats Waller's Ain't Misbehavin', the nostalgic Long Time Ago, and songs with many other moods. Special guest performers for the concert are Thunder Mountain Winds, a Flagstaff wind instruments quintet.
Canyon Singers' ever-popular cabarets give individual talents within the group an opportunity to strut their stuff. Eleanor Crowe (age 90) teams up with baritone John Cummings for I Remember it Well from Gigi. Sopranos Beth Sanford and Carolyn Fisher will sing solos, and Fisher will sing Island in the Sun with tenor Darryl Hawn.
Altos Patricia Lowell and Katharine Stewart add some humor with Too Old to Cut the Mustard. Nick Phillips will provide flute accompaniment for one choral number, and Canyon Singers' accompanist, Kathie Jossie will exercise her considerable talents on the piano. Sandra Reid will accompany individual and duet songs.
The cabarets begin promptly at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 9th at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church parish hall on Arroyo Pinyon Drive in West Sedona. Tickets are $10 and are available from Canyon Singers members or at the door prior to the performances.
Reid extends a special invitation to new Sedona residents who are looking for small, spirited choral group to sing with.
