Choral Cabaret To Be Held Feb. 9 at Centreville High

— Live entertainment, refreshments, gift baskets, a raffle, silent auction and an evening of fun are all in store for those attending Centreville High’s Choral Cabaret.

The annual fundraiser for the school’s choral program is set for Saturday, Feb. 9, at 7 p.m. Cost is $10, adults; $5, students. Students who buy tickets during lunch on Feb. 8 will get a free raffle ticket.

It’s a coffee-house-style program that the choir presents in the school cafeteria. Some 20 student acts – including the a cappella group, Contempo – will sing popular and Broadway tunes. Student waiters will serve the audience dessert, coffee and tea.

This year, there’ll be about 20, specially themed baskets in the silent auction. Some of the gift baskets will be titled, “Date Night,” “Spa,” “Chocolate,” ‘Wine,’ ‘Sports’ and “Year in Review.”

The raffle will feature 18-24 prizes valued at $10-$15 each and including prizes such as restaurant gift cards and gift certificates to local businesses. There’ll also be a 50/50 raffle at the end of the night. Raffle tickets are $1.

The choral program is raising money to purchase additional sound equipment and microphones for the choir. The current equipment isn’t designed for choirs and doesn’t pick up the blended sound of the whole group singing, so proceeds from this event will help.
