With our Summer Extravaganza less than three weeks away, preparations are in full swing – in particular for our 10 (yes, 10!) new numbers as well as a brand new, never-seen-before skit, which will no doubt have you rolling in the aisles.*
A particular favourite of mine is Sia’s Chandelier, arranged by Michael and featuring the dulcet tones of Katie in the solo spot. Michael’s arrangement centres around the girls, with one to a part, bringing the gentlemen in later as the song climaxes into rich 10 (yes, 10!)-part harmony. Whilst it’s highly likely that our dancing will not match up to that of child prodigy Maddie Ziegler, who features in the original 2014 music video, I’m willing to bet Michael’s arrangement will send the good kind of shivers down your spine.
As well as our 10 (yes, 10!) new numbers, there will of course be an opportunity to hear some old favourites including the tUnE-yArDs’ Water Fountain, our award-winning Musicals Medley and a teary rendition of No Air performed by departing a-cappellists Shirley and Teddy.
In the Smoke’s Summer Extravaganza will be taking place at the Greenwood Theatre near London Bridge at 8pm on Friday 31 July. Tickets can be purchased online or at a discounted rate via a group member. We’d love to see you there!
*We cannot guarantee that this will be down to the hilarity of the skit.
