If you have never attended any of the ‘Saturdays at 7’ Concerts at St. Andrew United Church in Chatham, you have missed some great entertainment. My wife and I were lucky enough to hear about this series a couple of years ago and attend whenever possible. We have recommended the special evenings to many others and they have become regular attendees.
Devon Hansen, the music director at the church, organizes, directs and produces the evenings. He is an extremely accomplished musician. Hansen brings in artists and musicians from Chatham as well as Windsor, Toronto, New York, British Columbia, Michigan and Wisconsin.I know we have certainly missed the concert series during the Pandemic as I am sure many others have. St. Andrew’s is hosting their 2nd hybrid performance this Saturday Oct 17 in response to the Covid Crisis. Performances will be presented in a format that follows government and health authority regualtions designed to keep people safe.
The theme of this week's performance is 'Something Wicked' The program will include the music of villains from some of out favorite movies. Numbers include music from villains such as Javert from Les Miserables, the Mad Hatter from Alice and Wonderland and Gaston from Beauty and The Beast. Those attending in person are asked to dress in costume to add to the fun of the evening.
Hybrid means that the concerts will be presented for both in person and virtual attendance. All concerts will be presented live in the St. Andrew's Sancuary before a limited sized audience as well as on-line. The series includes a wide variety of music, something for everyone!
