Cabaret is a night comprised of laid-back performances spotlighting members of the SHS choral program. Choral students look forward to the event throughout the course of the school year as the atmosphere breeds an aura of acceptance and support for each others’ musical ventures.

Choral Director, Mr. Ken Holdt, organizes the event with the help of the Choral Boosters. It is unique to the Variety Show because of its coffeehouse-feel. Performances are mostly acoustic-based and accompanied by a live instrument or track.

Performers are eligible to perform as a small ensemble, duet or solo. In addition to voice, singers are also able to show off their other musical skills by accompanying themselves with a guitar, piano, ukulele, or whatever they see, rather, sound, fit.

Distinctly, the candlelit ambiance showcases raw talent across all respectable choirs. Ian Suddarth, 10, Madrigal and Select choir member, participated in Cabaret for the first time this year.

“It’s really cool because a lot of different people do a lot of different things and you get to see what people like to perform on their own outside of choir,” said Suddarth.

On Feb. 11, supporters gathered around to listen to a variety of performances, including classics like Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra, pop hits with an acoustic twist like Exes and Ohs, and musical hits like City of Stars from the La La Land soundtrack or Sante Fe from Newsies.
