Cabaret Night a success

This past Friday, Friends of CCS Music and Art (FOMA) hosted the annual Cabaret Night, for the seventeenth year (one year longer than previously reported). Not only is Cabaret Night an important fund-raiser for FOMA’s summer scholarships, but a well-loved and supported community event. A huge thank you goes to the many individuals, businesses and organizations whose contributions made the evening a great success.

``It seems each year it grows just a bit more.’’ And who would know better than Cabaret veteran Mark LaValley, who once again provided sound equipment and his expertise. This year, Mark added some spots and mood lighting. These elements, combined with the dTcor and dual stages, created a wonderful ambiance and quick transition time between acts. Appreciation and thanks go to Music Department members Sal Salvaggio, Tim Iversen and Peter Daum, and Kaitlin Esford who encouraged and prepared the student performers, and orchestrated the staging. Thanks also to the Art Department’s Kristen Karasek and Eileen Murphy and their students whose original sculptures helped create a wonderful environment.

We welcomed back seasoned musicians from the community and student body, and were delighted by the talented newcomers who performed. Thanks to Rebecca Burk-Sciallo, our emcee, who announced the following the cabaret features:

  • Our Readers' Opinions After living in the western southern tier for 10 years, my wife and I decided to visit the Hall of Fame today, June 20, before moving out of the area in a few weeks. We enjoyed the museum, but parking in Cooperstown proved to be a formidable gauntlet.
