‘THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT’ – IT SURE WAS!

Melody Makers International, the Costa

Melody Makers International, the Costa's leading mixed voice choir, were in excellent form last Saturday when they presented their latest show, 'That's Entertainment'.

Melody Makers International, the Costa’s leading mixed voice choir, were in excellent form last Saturday when they presented their latest show, ‘That’s Entertainment’.

The sell-out audience was treated to a mixture of excellent choruses, exceptional soloists, a close harmony group, and a musical comedy sketch which brought the house down.

The show started with a rousing medley of songs on the theme of “That’s Entertainment’, and continued with choral arrangements of such hits as Bridge Over Troubled Water, Wind Beneath My Wings, and What I Did For Love.

There were fine solo performances, starting with a flawless rendition of Part Of Your World by the young Elise MacGregor. Allen Millar sang Somewhere from West Side Story, and the well-known Janelle Gaskell ended the first half with the Whitney Houston classic One Moment In Time, supported by the always excellent Melody Makers.

The solo highlight of the first half was undoubtedly the song I Could Have Danced All Night from My Fair Lady sung impeccably by the 18 year old prodigy Verity Hall – a voice bound for the heights.

A new inclusion to the Nigel Hopkins shows was the presentation given by 16 members of the group who had come together as a close harmony group – to great effect. They sang Nella Fantasia and the syncopated Sentimental Journey

The second half of the programme continued with chorus arrangements as Fields Of Gold, and two beautiful Ivor Novello songs, I Can Give You The Starlight and We’ll Gather Lilacs with solos provided by Dawn Ritch. Great excitement was created when the song Rock Around The Clock was performed.

During the song the stage was ‘invaded’ by Lynn and Chris Gaskell who entertained with one of the most energetic and perfect jives most people had ever seen. Lynn, a former All England Professional Latin champion, runs The Strictly Dance dance school, and the packed audience was astounded by the quality of dance.

Mary Beer – well-known to Costa audiences – sang beautifully a medley of older songs, and Verity Hall once more wowed an adoring audience with Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again from Phantom Of The Opera, before we reached the comedy highlight of the evening.

Jane Atkinson and Eric Berg again united to dress up and sing and act a spoof on Lover Come Back To Me from New Moon, which left the audience rocking in their seats.

The concerts this year supported the children’s charity Debra – the Butterfly Children and conductor and director Nigel Hopkins explained the horrible genetic condition to the audiences with a very emotional appeal. Nigel had also written a song called Butterfly which was performed by the three young soloists Verity Hall, Janelle Gaskell and Elise MacGregor, which left lumps in the throat and compassion in the hearts of all those present.

The finale was a repeat of the exciting medley of songs from Phantom Of The Opera which Melody Makers International had performed in Benidorm Palace in October whilst raising many thousands of euros for charity.

The departing audience donated generously to the Debra charity buckets and, with the large donation given by Melody Makers, raised a total of €3,000 on the day for the Butterfly Children.
