Money raised from ticket sales and donations will help the Foundation keep up their outstanding work with talented young musicians as they start out on their musical careers. Altissime sang pieces from favourite Broadway shows, both as a choir and as small ensembles. Marsden Old Girl Lara Strong treated our audience to a wonderful rendition of "The History of Wrong Guys" from Kinky Boots. Our Cultural Coordinator Sarah Wilson shared some Broadway history and fabulous stories from various theatres to link the performances together. Choir director Maaike Christie-Beekman gave a show-stopping performance singing "I'm a Stranger Here Myself" and "Het is over". We count our blessings she is at the helm of Marsden's flagship choir, Altissime. It was a very special evening.
