Under the Big Top
by Monika Templeman, LWRWC Publicity Chair
On Thursday, March 21, 2019, 40 Lakewood Ranch Women’s Club members, husbands, and friends had a marvelous and very entertaining evening at Cirque des Voix. This incredible presentation featuring the 100+ voices of the Key Chorale, the 40-piece Cirque Orchestra, and spellbinding circus acts was a dazzling experience well worth the price of admission!
The circus magic took place in a big top circus tent outside of Sarasota’s University Town Center mall and was organized by the Circus Arts Conservatory of Sarasota. Most of the acts were solo acts and the artists were top notch, award winning circus performers. What made this show so unique and awesome was the full orchestra and large chorus accompanying the circus acts.
According to LWRWC President, Kathleen Cleveland, Cirque des Voix was “a veritable feast for the five senses.
- Sight: talented daredevil performers;
- Sound: the music of over 100 voices of the Key Chorale and the Cirque Orchestra, including beautiful movies sound tracks;
- Taste & Smell; tantalizing popcorn and cotton candy; and
- Touch: we were so close to the arena that we could almost reach out and touch the fantastic performers!”
Our thanks to LWRWC Program Co-Chairs Cathy Reinitz and Claudia Dombrow for coordinating this very entertaining off-the-ranch
