The Benzie County Community Chorus CABARET 2014, made up of 40+ voices, is a chorale extravaganza of music from the Broadway stage, the Blues of the Deep South, and the ever-lasting sounds of the Big Band Era.
George Gershwin and Andrew Lloyd Weber will be the main point of emphasis for the first half of the performance including some of Gershwin’s more legendary tunes including, “Foggy Day,”  “I Got Rhythm” and selections from Porgy and Bess.  The Andrew Lloyd Weber segment features tunes from some of his hit shows including Phantom of the Opera, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
The second half features a segment of Blues Music including “Blues In the Night,” “Birth of the Blues” and “Basin Street Blues” concluding with their signature segment of American standards including “Mood Indigo,” The Shadow of Your Smile,” and “It Don’t Mean a Thing.” 
Throughout CABARET 2014 several outstanding soloists will step into the spotlight and share what they do best.  The voices of Karen Remington, Dick Hahn, Andy Mollema, Ginny Freeman, Dave Johnson, well known to Cabaret audiences as well as around the globe, will be joined this year by Stan Otto, Dinah Haag, and Andrew Wolowiec (in the reincarnation of Elvis).
For over 30 years the 40+ voices that make up the Benzie Community Choir have been entertaining both domestically and abroad with their unique style and sound.  Highlights include five tours abroad in England and Europe including the Notre Dame Cathedral.


Recognizing the importance of making sure a place like City Opera House does not become a thing of the past, BCC members asked if they might do their part in assuring the City Opera House lives forever. City Opera House welcomes this special performance and truly appreciates the efforts from Benzie County Community Chorus for this generous gift.
