Christmas Proms

Adelaide Festival Theatre - December 2013

« Back to Reviews

“The popular Christmas Proms took on Broadway this year, and who better than mastermind Timothy Sexton and the Adelaide Art Orchestra to keep toes tapping in a solid program. Guest stars Mitchell Butel and Chelsea Gibb delighted in solo spots and fun ensemble numbers with the band and the excellent Follies Five, from Sexton’s State Opera chorus. The orchestra was oh so good in the wonderful Girl Crazy overture, and that was just to start. In the band, Dale Ringland (piano), Julia Norman (bass) and Simon Varga (drums) were a superb trio. The yuletide fare ranged from popular classics such as We Need A Little Christmas to cheery sing-a-longs like the now traditional no-holds-barred audience participation in The Twelve Days of Christmas”.
