In celebration of Heritage Hall’s 50th anniversary, this year’s Fall Revue, GOLD, held Oct. 19-21, took audiences on a magical musical ride spanning 1969 to today. The Upper School chorus opened the show with a groovy medley of hits from 1969 that included “Aquarius,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “Gimme Some Lovin’,” “Everyday People,” and “Let the Sunshine In.” The number, brilliantly choreographed by dance teacher Chelsea Jones, was followed by crowd-pleasing orchestra, rock band, solo, and ensemble performances.
A favorite moment for many came when the cast, crew, and audience all got to their feet to join in the “Macarena,” the dance craze of 1996. “It was fun seeing everyone let go of their reservations for a minute to participate and just be silly,” remarked senior performer Aneirin Truong. That fun, memorable moment perfectly summed up the essence of the show.
Upon reflection, senior Eric Smith commented,“It was really special to hear all of those voices and instruments come together to create such great music.” The good news is, there’s more great music to come. Visit the Performing Arts page for a calendar of upcoming events.
