Bay Head Chapel hosts musical revue with a treat


BAY HEAD — Bay Head Chapel’s first annual Musical Revue and Ice Cream Social brought dozens of community members together to savor sweet treats and listen to tunes in a variety of genres including Motown classics, Broadway greats and even a cappella.

“It went amazing,” organizer Allison Sargent said of the event, which was hosted at the chapel Sunday, Aug. 27. “It was a great turnout.”

A crowd of about 100 men, women, families, parishioners and summer visitors came out to enjoy the first annual revue and social, which also offered them a chance to get to acquainted with all the chapel has to offer.

First up in a list of varied performances was For Stories, a barbershop quartet that, according to the program, aims to bring “storytelling to a cappella music and a cappella music to storytelling.”

Dressed in black pants, white and red stripped vests, black bowties and gold top hats, the men performed such notalgic numbers as “Coney Island Baby,” “My Wild Irish Rose,” “In the Good Old Summertime,” “Lida Rose” from “The Music Man” and many more.
