Another day, more cabaret.
It’s amazing how much you feel you get to know the fellow participants in a workshop like this, in such a short time. Once again, everyone was amazingly open and it was terrific to see a lot of people making great strides. In addition to individual performance issues, the teaching team of Lina Koutrakos and Rick Jensen covered issues such as patter, getting arrangements and working with a music director, and commercial aspects of cabaret. It fascinates me that even in an enterainment-driven market such as Las Vegas, there is no cabaret room, and performers face many issues that those of us in the rest of the country do.
It’s the final day today, with concert tonight.
