Singing at the Movies

20130605 film center

Tonight was a first both for the Spirituals Choir and the new Martha’s Vineyard Film Center: we sang as a sort of appetizer for the M.V. Film Society’s screening of Cabin in the Sky (1943). The acoustics were challenging, but the audience was appreciative — and we got to watch the film for free. Cabin in the Sky features wonderful singing by Ethel Waters and Lena Horne, among  others, and an appearance by Duke Ellington and his band as well.
