JUNE 13, 2015 - STUDENT REUNION RECITAL
This year marks the 20th year that I've been teaching adult singing classes/groups/choirs and my 15th year as a dance instructor so it seemed like a good time to have a reunion recital! And this recital was action packed!
Our Broadway Community Choir opened the show with a rousing rendition of 'Seventy-Six Trombones' which was then followed by a number of Broadway show tunes and some classic pop/rock like 'Don't Stop Believing'. The current members of the C Notes were joined by some singers from last year to perform some of our more difficult songs ('And So It Goes', 'The Ash Grove', 'Compass' and 'Home On The Range'). Our newest C Notes' repertoire included a moving rendition of Beyonce's 'If I Were A Boy' and 'Danny Boy'.
It was a real treat to include two tap dance numbers in this recital. I was joined by Rebecca Robb, a tap teacher from Australia this year and together we choreographed and performed two dances: 'More' and 'Walking My Baby Back Home'.

The Broadway Choir, the C Notes and a small, energetic group of tappers put on another fantastic, fun-filled recital on December 8, 2014. The C Notes performed some delightfully complicated harmonies in a couple folk songs and a classic pop song as well as Billy Joel's 'And So It Goes' and Lady Antebellum's 'Compass'.
The Broadway Choir brought life to some great musical theater songs including 'Everything's Coming Up Roses', 'I Whistle A Happy Tune' and 'Not While I'm Around'. We had such a great response to 'Singin' In The Rain' at our last recital that we had to do it again - with tappers, again! A hit, again. As was 'Why Do Fools Fall In Love'.
Tappers entertained everyone dancing to The Beach Boys' 'Little Deuce Coup' and Bobby Darin's 'More'.
All singers closed the show with a rousing rendition of Journey's 'Don't Stop Believing'.
We're always grateful for everyone who comes out to support us and cheer us on at these recitals! Looking forward to the next one.

The Broadway Choir and the C Notes recently put on a fabulous show in their summer recital on June 16, 2014. The Broadway Choir opened the show with a rousing rendition of "Another Op'nin', Another Show" which was followed by a selection of classic musical theatre numbers and classic oldies with soulful harmonies, including Simon Garfunkel's "The Boxer" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water". A couple of crowd favourites were "Singin' In The Rain" and "When I'm Gone" (also known as the Cups song) which had the added bonus of tappers!
Another sold out show with rave reviews!

The Broadway Choir and the C Notes had their winter concert on December 9, 2013. It was a smashing success! As always, it was a great variety of music from musical theatre to classic Beatles tunes. The audience is already asking for our next recital!
