Recast Concert raises £1734 for Charity

Posted on: February 1st 2017Academy News

In collaboration with the Cotswold Savoyards and Tewkesbury Camerata, All Saints' Academy proudly presented Recast, a concert of songs from the musicals sung like they have never been heard before.

Saturday 28th January saw professional musicians from around the country visit All Saints’ Academy for a charity fundraising concert. The concert named ‘RECAST’ was the brilliant idea of Music Teacher Mr Aitchison and Cotswold Savoyards member Aimée Sullivan. The premise of the concert was that roles were reversed. Musical songs traditionally sang by men were sang by women and visa-versa.

Mr Aitchison, musical director of the show used his large network of music friends to create a fantastic orchestra alongside the Tewkesbury Camerata. Aimée Sullivan was the Producer of RECAST and worked on casting some brilliant singers for the show. Singers joined the show from Cotswold Savoyards, Cheltenham Operatic and Dramatic Society and All Saints’ Academy.

All Saints’ Choir performed ‘Little Girls’ from Annie which was fantastic. The Loserville cast gave the audience a taste of their upcoming production with the song ‘Ticket Outta Loserville’.

The evening was a sell out with a strong audience of 200. We raised £1734 on the evening. The money will be split equally between the All Saints’ Africa Mission Trip Fund and Macmillan Cancer Support.
