This was an evening that Teignmouth Sings had been looking forward to for a long time…..
A local couple, Anita and Michael Bartlett, contacted us in late 2014 to ask if we would sing for a special event they were organising at the Langstone Cliff Hotel in Dawlish Warren – their Golden Wedding Anniversary!
Anita and Michael liaised with Teignmouth Sings as regards choice of music, and wanting their special occasion to be a little different, had hit on the idea of their guests donating to chosen charities rather than presenting them with gifts.
Guests assembled for dinner early evening in the the Washington Ballroom, and our one hour mid-evening performance included a new medley learned specially for the occasion, ‘Beatles in Review’ arranged by Ed Lojeski *
So that we were offering the guests a good selection from down the years we also sang:-
Big City Beat * Make you feel my Love * the Mamma Mia Medley *
Sing a Song * Whistle down the Wind * Close to You
Bohemian Rhapsody * Chattanooga Choo Choo * Rhythm of Life
At the end of the performance we presented Anita and Michael with a congratulatory bouquet and a card signed by members of the choir. The money raised by the event for Children’s Hospice South West was £405.
We were recorded by a member of the audience singing Chattanooga Choo Choo….
