'The Flip Side' a Cabaret of song and style
The Performance Hall at the new Brattleboro Music Center will be the setting for a trip back in time, when clubs were swanky and the music cool.
Singers Junko Wantanabe, Jennifer Hansen, Peter Shea, and Charles Mays, Jr. will join Concert Choir Director Susan Dedell at the piano for a smooth evening of cabaret entertainment. "You've heard them on the concert stage, you've seen them at the Marlboro Festival, and as soloists with the New England Bach Festival, Boston Early Music Festival, and the Boston Lyric Opera," says Dedell. "But just wait until you hear them sing favorite show tunes, jazz standards, and songs from the great American songbook. "
Ticket sales will benefit the Concert Choir, the BMC's oldest performing ensemble, which has been under the direction of Susan Dedell since 1989. "As much as we revere our soloists in their familiar roles, we thought it would be great fun to show their flip sides, highlighting their talents in a different way, supporting the Concert Choir at the same time," said Dedell. "I am grateful that they agreed. There will be quite a bit of `strutting their stuff,'" she added.
The Flip Side cabaret starts at 7:30 p.m., and will feature plentiful hors d'oeuvres provided by Kris McDermet and Judy Hueber, and a cash bar provided by Windham Wines.
Table seating is $30 per person for tables of 4; balcony seating is $20. Seating is limited! For more information and tickets, contact the Brattleboro Music Center at 802-257-4523 or online at bmcvt.org.
