Rockport — The Camden Hills Regional High School Women’s Choir and Chamber Singers have invoked their snow date and will present their annual Dessert Cabaret Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. in the Wave Café of the school, Route 90. The original date was Feb. 11.

The annual Dessert Cabaret is a delightful evening full of sweets and songs. The $10 ticket price includes all-you-can-eat desserts created by parents and local restaurants and served by members of the Chorale. The entertainment features a variety of solos and duets performed by the Chamber Singers and Women’s Choir students.

Some of the featured numbers this year include classic rock and jazz numbers such as “Fever,” sung by Jolly Brown and Sean Oshima, and “Brown Eyed Girl,” sung by Alex Wilder, the Oshima Brothers and Will Conover; plus highlights from Broadway musicals such as “I Dreamed a Dream,” performed by Elizabeth Cummons, and “Love Never Dies,” sung by Frannie Howard-Girard. The entertainment includes 20 songs with as much variety in the music as in the array of delectable desserts.

Featured this year will be a special Valentine Raffle to support the band and chorus trip to Virginia Beach. The raffle ($5 a ticket) offers of four possible prizes: a “priceless” cheesecake; a Valentine Basket filled with goodies ($100 value); a two-hour cruise with Camden Sailing Charters ($200 value); and, the grand prize,  a pair of exquisite earrings created by Nancy Linkin ($500 value). Tickets for this special Valentine Raffle can be purchased ahead of time at HAV II or Planet in Camden; ticket holders do not need to be present to win.

Two other fun raffles will be available that night, for those present: for just $1, audience members can buy a chance to be serenaded by either the Women’s Choir or the male a cappella ensemble The Off Beats. The evening will end with a cake auction.

The popular Dessert Cabaret seating is limited; therefore, audience members are encouraged to purchase their tickets early. Tickets will also be available at the door. For more information, or to reserve tickets, call Kim Murphy at 236-7800, ext. 295.
