Aptly titled ‘Call it What You Want’, this- the new choral production directed by Peshali Yapa and her students- is a musical venture that appears to embrace a world of possibilities. Taking the stage on July 28 and 29, the performance follows the theme of love and friendship, narrating a story spanning the several nuances of friendship through nothing more than the lyrics of the songs they sing.
Seventy-two singers switch from genre to genre with almost effortless ease in a performance which they feel defies description.
When a choral concert sets out to present music from the 1920’s and beyond; and its theme – one which cannot be truly defined, it comes as no surprise that its title would raise a few eyebrows.
The cast is made up of pupils from the junior choir, The Piccolinis and the senior choir, Coro Cant Amici. They are of different ages ranging from 6 to 39 years . Some are still at school, others at university or working but all have a shared love of music and song. They will be accompanied by Asitha Tennekoon, Shevon Rajasekara, Christopher Prins and Tilanka Jayamanne. Tickets for the show will be available at the LionelWendt
