RANDOLPH, N.J. - Randolph High School Choir & Theater Booster Association (CTBA) presented their sixth annual “Cabaret Night,” last Friday night to Randolph families and friends. The concert was full of show-tunes delivered by various student soloists, the RHS Combined Choirs, RHS Chamber Choir, RHS A Capella Group, and Randolph Middle School’s Canzonetta Select Choir.

The concert was held in the RHS Commons; the night kicked off with a meal, catered by many surrounding restaurants. All food at the concert was donated by Randolph businesses who generously supported the school event . After dinner, the show began with “Seasons of Love” from Rent, sung by all performers in a circle around the room.

Musical Director Matthew Swiss expressed, "I am very proud of the choirs and grateful to the Choir and Theater Booster Association for putting this wonderful event together. It is always a fun evening; it’s been exciting to watch the program grow year after year for the last five years."

 After “Seasons of Love”, a few soloists performed wonderfully, and RMS Canzonetta performed “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music.

“I’ve always been an audience member for Cabaret and I am so happy that I was able to perform in a show I so greatly respect,” said senior performer Morgan Rogers, “Watching or performing in Cabaret are both incredible experiences and I'm incredibly proud of all the people apart of it; it's truly an unforgettable performance.

Later, the RHS Chamber Choir sang “For Good” from the show Wicked. The dramatic ending of this piece marked the start of intermission, where delicious desserts, donated by more surrounding restaurants and bakeries, were served.

After intermission, Act II began. RHS A Cappella Group performed for the second time ever, singing “Just the Way You Are/Just A Dream” from the movie Pitch Perfect.

“I’m so proud of how well our new a cappella group not only sung but brought to life our piece,” said A Cappella Group student director Ariana Pereira, “The audience could tell that everyone up there was having a blast and I can't wait until our performance this spring to prove once again what we are capable of.”

Cabaret’s finale this year was “Finale B” from Rent, sung by the combined choirs. The men in the choir sang the most meaningful and memorable line of the whole show, “Give in to love, or give in to fear”. The song is extremely influential to the performers, as it is the senior’s graduation anthem.

“Cabaret night has always been my favorite night of the year,” said RHS Choir Council President Carly Francesconi. She continued, “It's a great way to bring the community together to enjoy some amazing food and let students showcase their talents. As Choir President, planning for Cabaret Night is the most strenuous task of the year for me, and this year it required a lot of time and effort, figuring out decorations and then putting them all together. I couldn't have done it without the rest of the Choir Council, who came up with many creative ideas and helped make the centerpieces as well as set up for Cabaret. I couldn't have been more proud of the outcome this year.”

The month of March is called Music in Our Schools Month, and the district has many concerts planned for the remainder of February and the entirety of March. Randolph families and friends who enjoy the arts can look forward to the following concerts and productions: the district-wide String Fest on February 27, The Bands of Randolph High School 2017 concert on March 2, the RMS Spring Musical, Grease, on March 9-11, the RHS Spring Musical, Annie, on March 17-18, and District Band Night on March 21.
