Waylanders have come to expect a fantastic show from College A Capella, and last night’s performance did not disappoint. The Chattertocks from Brown kicked things off with a Katie Perry – Taylor Swift mashup, and the rest of the singing groups kept the energy going all evening. We heard everything from standards (“My Funny Valentine,” also sung by the Chattertocks) to folk (Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” from the MIT Chorallaries) to calypso (“Kiss the Girl,” performed by the “very serious” T-Tones and two “volunteer” audience members) to rock (“Grey Street” from the Madrigals). In a poignant moment, the Muses performed “Shape of You” in memory of Lauren Dunne Astley. They also donated CD sale proceeds to Astley’s memorial fund. The last group to perform was Yale Baker’s Dozen, featuring Wayland’s own Bobby Dresser — he got a big round of applause for his solo!
CAPA thanks the performers and everyone who worked behind the scenes to pull off another successful benefit concert for WHS Fine Arts programs.
