Pirate Spoof is Theme of Manchester Silk City Chorus Annual Show
The renowned Silk City Barbershop Chorus of Manchester launches its 51st year with its annual show on Saturday, January 25th at the Manchester High School Auditorium. Show times are 1:30 PM and 7:30 PM.
The title of this year’s show is “Save Our Ship”, a parody on the role and lives of pirates from mid- to late 19th century. The 40 performing members of the Silk City Chorus will appear in memorable pirate costumes, with traditional “accessories”, acting like pirates while performing entertaining parodies of well known pirate songs.
Among the songs the chorus will perform are “Drunken Sailor”, “How Deep Is the Ocean”, “Son of the Sea”, “Yo Ho! A Pirate’s Life for Me”, and the ultimate spoof on life on a pirate ship: “What! No Women?”
In addition to the host chorus performance, the 51st annual show will feature two world class a cappella groups: quartets which earned Bronze Medals in the 2013 International Championship. The quartet “A Mighty Wind” are Third Place Medalists visiting us from Atlanta. The quartet “Forefront” are 5th Place Medalists who join us from Ohio.
Also appearing in the show will be the Conn-Men, a popular a cappella group from the University of Connecticut, who have performed as the opening act for nationally known performers such as Pentatonix and Rockapella.
All seating for both shows is reserved for your convenience and comfort. Advance seating prices are Primary (front 4 rows): $28.00; Secondary: $23.00; Classic: $20.00; Standard: $17.00.
