Loosely Woven presents 'Summertime'
2nd - 18th December 2011

By Wayne Richmond
Posted Thursday, October 27, 2011

Loosely Woven is a community based group of people who put together and perform three brand new shows each year. 'Summertime' is the third of these for 2011.

The concert includes a selection of Christmas-related items but not your usual set of Christmas carols. The concert begins with 'The Huron Carol'. There is also a very clever arrangement of 'I saw three ships', an adaption of Susanni as performed by The Renaissance Players, a fun song called 'Grandpa's gonna sue the pants offa Santa' and a spectacular arrangement of 'O Holy Night'.

The rest of the concert will be the usual eclectic Loosely Woven mix ranging from a heart-wrenching Hottentot song called 'The Bethlehem Bell Ringer' to the concert's title song, to excerpts from The Rocky Horror Show and Moulon Rouge. There are 24 of us performing this time with an instrumental line-up that includes: harp, flute, clarinets, saxophone, violins, guitars, piano, accordion, keyboard and percussion.

See the 'Summertime' web site for details of the program.
