The Friends Association for Care & Protection of Children will host its annual concert, “Life Is a Cabaret: An Evening of Jazz and Broadway,” on Saturday, April 27 from 6-8 PM at the Abbotts’ Barn in West Chester.
Doors open at 5:30 PM.
Friends Association promotes the independence of families with children by providing shelter, programs, and services that prevent and end homelessness in Chester County. In 2018, Friends Association saved more than 120 families and 270 children from homelessness.
“Those families who either are experiencing homelessness, or have been notified of eviction, are able to turn to Friends Association for family shelter or support in fending off eviction,” said Jennifer Lopez, the Friends Association’s Executive Director. “We are so appreciative of the musicians who donate their time and the attendees who enjoy the event because their support assists struggling Chester County families who will benefit from housing stability and guidance for financial independence.”
Think of a cabaret as a great meal that’s extravagant, prepared with great care, nutritious, and good for the soul. During such a meal, one expects balance and variety: savory and sweet, familiar and perhaps unfamiliar with a variety of textures and flavors. The corollary in cabaret is that you want both familiar and unfamiliar songs, both humorous and serious songs, as well as songs of different tempos and styles.
Performing cabaret classics will be:
- Vocals: Catherine Friedman, Joshua Graves, and Heidi Starr
- Guitar: John Braceland
- Keyboard: Rob Sparre
- Drums: Bobby Martin
- Bass: Frank Gwynn
- Pianist: Timothy Crawford
