A Night at the Cobham Club
Cobham Hall’s Gilt Hall became the setting for a night of jazz, ballads and swing as it was transformed into a twenties-style nightspot.
The School Choir performed numbers including ‘Sing, Sing, Sing!’, ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’’, ‘Swing Time’ and ‘Puttin’ on the Ritz’, whilst the Benesonantes, the School’s Chamber Choir, wowed the audience with their renditions of ‘Fly Right’, ‘Take Five’ and Unforgettable’.
Interspersed between the choirs’ performances, our instrumentalists also had the chance to shine, with a piano solo of ‘Cruella de Vil’, an orchestral performance of ‘Pink Panther’, and a flute solo of ‘Smoke gets in your eyes’.
The annual Summer Music Concert always takes a theme, and this year’s was embracing the razzmatazz, glamour and fun of jazz, ballards and swing. A hit with the packed Gilt Hall audience, we can’t wait to see what next year brings!
