Just One of Those Things – A Celebration of the life and works of Cole Porter 2023

Genre: Projects


A fun and energetic small scale review of Cole Porter featuring some of his best loved songs – Begin the Beguine, You do Something to Me, Anything Goes, Night and Day to name just a few. Suitable for festivals big and small.

Clare McCaldin, mezzo soprano
Paul Sheehan, bass-baritone
Stephen Dickinson, piano

Thaxted Festival has been delighted to host Clare, Paul and Stephen for two shows now – Stephen Sondheim in 2022 and Cole Porter in 2023. I am pleased to report that ticket sales were very strong for both events, with the Porter selling out! The feedback from our patrons has been extremely positive, particularly this year, with several verbal ‘rave reviews’, complementing the performances, the detailed presentation and interesting talk between songs and the musical staging. I can’t invite them back for 2024 because we are celebrating the Host150, and this will disappoint their growing Thaxted fanbase! The concerts are very well put together and, above all, are great fun for the audiences. Do be sure to book them yourselves.
