Students stage stunning Perse Charity Cabaret
28 Jan 2019
Students displayed their musical talents with dazzling performances at the annual Perse Charity Cabaret.
With funds raised going to The Children’s Society, the Perse Bursary Fund and the school’s outreach projects, the event proved to be a success with a large audience enjoying a terrific evening of song.
The concert featured music performed by highly accomplished soloists, duos and vocal groups from a wide range of genres from jazz and musical theatre to easy listening and modern pop. Alongside covers of famous tunes, there was a performance of Lower Sixth student Ben Bradshaw’s original work Reckless, performed by Matthew Chan (Lower Sixth) and the Perse Big Band.
The Perse Big Band also provided their powerful backing to renditions of songs such as Fly Me to the Moon, Valerie and Toxic, while fresh from a masterclass with top a cappella group The Sons of Pitches, the Acappelicans gave their vocal twist to an Aretha Franklin medley, Billy Joel’s Lullabye and Portugal the Man hit Feel It Still.
A sensational evening of entertainment was rounded off with a light-hearted song and dance routine from the Senior Prefects.
