Going down a musical memory lane with Revelations

Reminisce and Show Time

The Revelations, the all-male choral group who made a grand entrance to our local music scene in 1994, need little or no introduction.

This month, fans are in for a treat when they will be performing a host of songs which they consider as numbers close to their heart and ones they have performed over the years.

"The concert is titled 'Reminisce' because we will be reminiscing all the past numbers we have performed," says Ishan de Lanerolle, President of The Revelations. They include, "Keys to the walls of heaven" "Grandfather's clock", "Late in the evening", "To love somebody" and "Older woman".

Reminisce will be held on March 19 and 20 at 7p.m. at the Lionel Wendt Theatre and tickets can be purchased from tomorrow at the theatre.

Sunday March 21 sees 'Show Time', a concert by the Revelations Academy on the boards at the Lionel Wendt. The Academy that was begun in 2007 recently marked their 100th student and has grown in popularity.

Adults will sing hits such as "I'm yours", "Open arms" and "Reeling in the years," while the children will perform a Beatles medley, "Have you ever seen the rain" and "Somewhere over the rainbow”.

The Academy hosts classes for drama and art for children and of course singing for adults and children. "But this time emphasis will be on the singing factor," says Ishan who is also president of the academy.

The concert will be at the Lionel Wendt Theatre on March 21 at 7 p.m. Tickets will be available at the theatre from tomorrow.
