What do high school football and outstanding choral music have in common?
For Bexley residents, the answer is simple: five linemen on the Bexley High School varsity football team, who are also key members of the Bexley High School Vocal Ensemble.
Led by Amy Johnston Blosser, the Vocal Ensemble – the top of BHS’s five choirs – will celebrate this link at the choir’s annual Cabaret on Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. and Nov. 2 at 12:30 p.m. at Bexley High School, 326 S. Cassingham Road, when the five linemen join forces for Al Sherman’s vaudeville hit "You’ve Got to Be a Football Hero (To Get Along with the Beautiful Girls)."
Cabaret is the Vocal Ensemble’s annual dinner theater. The fare includes an array of lighter selections performed by soloists and small groups from the choir, along with a meal of homemade pasta, salad, drinks and dessert served by costumed members of the choir. The vocalists will be accompanied by Casey Cook Westfall.
In addition to "Football Hero," numbers scheduled for this year’s Cabaret include "Witchcraft" (as performed by Frank Sinatra), "Anything You Can Do" (from Annie Get your Gun), "You’re the One that I Want" (from Grease), "My Girl," "Viva la Vida" (as performed by Coldplay), "Take a Chance on Me" (as performed by ABBA), and "All My Lovin’ " (as performed by the Beatles).
Tickets are $12 adults and $8 students. Proceeds will go toward the choir’s European tour this summer. Seats are reserved on a first come basis, and will be available at the door.
