Cabaret Night Hits All the Right Notes

Ample measures of spirit, pluck, and talent were in the house as seventeen Upper School students and teachers braved the spotlight at the annual Cabaret Night. Musical selections ranged from 18th-century opera sung in Italian to classic Broadway show tunes to contemporary pop and folk songs. Performances brimmed with professions of love and longing, declarations of self-worth, and dreams of success. History teacher Suzy Glazer, a classically trained soprano, treated the audience to two Broadway hits, and Chorale director Joseph Horning, who organized and hosted the popular event, opened the evening with a rousing rendition of an Oklahoma! favorite. He later performed a duet with Voice teacher Adriana Repetto and provided some piano accompaniment throughout the evening, along with Valerie J. Becker P'15 and sophomore Henry Goddard.
