Vocal and Chamber Orchestra Performance

On March 26, the Advanced Treble Choir, Men’s Choir, and 7th and 8th grade Vocal Majors presented a concert, which included the Schubert Mass in G and a West Side Story medley. The choir performed along with and were accompanied by the Chamber Orchestra.

The Schubert Mass in G is a 5 movement piece that is completely sung in Latin. This piece included many solos sung by the vocal students. The Chamber Orchestra comprised of string instruments played a lovely show and showed much skill. The choir also sang this piece quite wonderfully. Both groups played this piece very well together.

The West Side Story medley is a 4 movement piece which features hit songs from the highly acclaimed musical West Side Story. This piece also included solos sung by the vocal students with both the Chamber Orchestra playing and Piano. It was quite a beautiful showcase of both the Chamber Orchestra students and the Vocal students. All in all, it was a very successful concert which great quality and songs.

Cab Halls Are Alive

Come See The Sound of Music!

As the curtains come to a close on the 2018/19 theatre season, one show really stood out: the high school production of The Sound Of Music! The Sound Of Music, produced by Mrs. Eldrith, was well executed and the vocals were top notch. With bubbly characters and a heartwarming story, The Sound Of Music was a hit. In the first act of the show, we were introduced to the main character Maria played by S. Rossi, and with her strong stage presence and spectacular vocal performance, she was captivating to all audiences. Though the first act is lengthy it pays off. The show even included scenes with some of Cab’s very own teachers including, but not limited to, Dr. Morton and Dean Rumschlag. With this show coming to an end we will all miss The Sound of Music! Shows were March 15, 16 & 17 and March 22, 23 & 24.

How Did it Become… The Sandwich?

The Epic Saga of How the Sandwich Came to Be

Sandwiches. Everybody loves them, right? They come in all varieties, from Italian, to tuna salad, to Nutella. There are even restaurants devoted to making sandwiches! But how did we end up with such a delicious, versatile creation?

Enter the 4th earl of Sandwich (yes, that’s a real title), John Montagu. He was a somewhat prominent politician in the mid-to-late 1700s, as part of the House of Lords and the postmaster general for England. During the American Revolution, he was the first lord of the Admiralty (a fancy name for the political head of the navy). He was also infamous for being a prolific gambler and poker player.

We know for a fact that two things were named after him: the Sandwich Islands (Now known as Hawaii) and the sandwich. The latter is supposedly because of an event that is most likely untrue. The story goes that the earl was playing poker, while also eating meat. However, he couldn’t eat his food while holding his poker cards. So, he ordered one of his servants to bring him two pieces of bread. He put the meat between the bread, and was able to play cards while also enjoying his food.

In summary, while the Earl of Sandwich may not have invented the sandwich, he was its namesake, and the reason Hawaii originally shared its name with hoagies. So, I guess we can be grateful it was named after him, and not with any of these earls: The Earl of Bath, the Earl of Ogle, or the Earl of Tinmouth. Next time you eat a sandwich, be grateful that you aren’t eating a ham and cheese tinmouth, or a meatball ogle.
