Unbeknownst to the majority of the population,
classical musicians are not as straight-laced
as one might suspect. 
In the wee hours of the night,
if you keep a keen eye, you might spy them lurking
in the shadows of a karaoke bar, letting it all hang out.

Their special talents extend far beyond Mendelssohn and Brahms.  Who would suspect that they could sing
"Achy Breaky Heart" or "Rawhide" in two-part harmony while shaking their Elvis hips.  

With energy and enthusiasm,
an eclectic group of Divertimento Orchestra members
(conductor 'in tails') chilled out after two nights of
concert performances by singing along with the words
projected on the screen as smoothly as in the 1950's,
the glorious days of "Sing Along with Mitch."
