Christmas Unlimited – 5-year anniversary
In January 2018, under the direction of Anita Zengerink, Singing Unlimited (SU) performed their unique 5-year anniversary show! And on the 9th December of the same year, the audience at the (sold out) Meerse Theatre in hometown Hoofddorp, were enthralled as SU shone once again with their ‘Christmas Unlimited’ spectacle.
It was a fitting conclusion to a very successful year for this group of enthusiastic barbershop singers. With the fairytale Christmas décor in the background, the chorus sang yuletide carols and some songs from their repertoire.
The red line through the performance was: What is the message of Christmas?
Christine, the leading lady in the show, was confronted with this age-old question when she received an invitation to a gala. Her alter ego, in the voice of Marianne, led her angelically through the complexities of her dilemma.
All four men from the champion quartet, Men2B, were more than happy to accompany Christine to the gala. But was this the end of her quest? On the contrary.
After the interval, SU treated the audience to a crystal clear version of Carol of the Bells followed by more ballads and up tunes. And in conclusion, Christine was presented with a special gift – a list of seventy-eight names of family and friends who together with SU sang the answer to the Christmas message: The Secret of Christmas and We Are Family.
With their almost tactile enthusiasm, talent and the visible joy they have in producing such a show, Singing Unlimited again captivated the hearts of the audience and received a standing ovation!
