Rockport — The Camden Hills Regional High School Women’s Choir and Chamber Singers will present their annual Dessert Cabaret Monday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m. in the Wave Café of the school, just off Route 90.  Snow date has been set for Wednesday, Feb. 12.

Tickets to the annual Dessert Cabaret, $5 per person, includes all-you-can-eat desserts served by members of the chorale and created by parents and local restaurants. The entertainment features a variety of solos and duets performed by the Chamber Singers and Women’s Choir students.

A few of the featured numbers this year will be “Valerie,” performed by Jamie Oshima and Louis Klemperer, and “If I Ain’t Got You,” sung by Moira Pieri, as well as selections from movie and Broadway musicals such as “Love Is An Open Door” sung by Bethany Vix and Jacob Corney and “Stepsisters’ Lament” sung by Maggie Karras and Carly Berke. There even will be an original composition, “Makes Me Think More Of You” by Tori Arau. Many seniors will be featured including Frannie Howard-Girard, Annie Brady, Emily Grotz, Hannah Corney and Lindsay Taylor. With 20 total performances, this night promises as much variety in the music as in the array of desserts.

Musical selections also will be performed by the Chamber Singers and the Women’s Choir, as well as a joint performance to begin and end the evening; and there will be a raffle for the rare chance to be serenaded by a group of fine young men, The Off Beats. Raffle tickets are $1, available for purchase during the event.

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