The Witchert Chorale is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an evening's entertainment entitled "Around the World in 80 Days".
Inspired by the original novel by Jules Verne, and with a nod to Michael Palin, we pass through Europe, the Middle East, India, the Far East, America (North and South) before returning to the Reform Club, led safely through by a narrative written by Ed Cairns.
Along the way we will enjoy music which is both familiar (Parry, Puccini, Saint Saens, Rutter and others) and off the beaten track (Bortniansky, Stokem, Pinsuti) and there will be detours to points of interest — Ernst Toch's "Gesprochene Musik", Desde et alma.
Do dress up in costumes from the era (1902) and places visited!! (The journey goes from the UK via, Paris, Spain, Italy Greece, the Mediterranean, Port Suez, Djibouti, Ade, India, Japan, Argentina and the USA (New Orleans, Tennessee and New York, and back to the Reform Club in Pall Mall)
You shall see, and indeed hear, wonders!
Mark the date in your diary now: Saturday 6th December at St Mary's Church, beginning at 7.30pm.
Tickets £12 (£10 concessions, £3 children) in aid of The Friends of St Mary's and Haddenham Village Society, available from Blooming Fruit on Banks Parade, or Alison Court (01844 291553) or members of the Choir.
