Cabaret Night Hits All the Right Notes

Ample measures of spirit, pluck, and talent were in the house as 22 Upper School students and faculty members braved the spotlight at the annual Cabaret Night. Musical selections ranged from classic Broadway show tunes to contemporary pop, folk, and country songs, as well as a rollicking, Joplin-esque rag composed and played by pianist Henry Goddard ’20. The popular showcase for students taking voice lessons, as well as other singing enthusiasts, also featured the four-senior band Sphelonious Donk, a brother-sister performance, and the first-ever father-daughter duo. Ditching their day-job personas for the evening, History Department Chair Suzy Glazer and Math teacher Kevin Bau delighted the crowd with a duet from Little Shop of Horrors. Valerie Becker P’15 provided piano accompaniment, along with Chorale director Joseph Horning, who organized and hosted the spirited community event.
