Annual Cabaret Benefit
Princeton Pro Musica’s 2017 annual Cabaret Benefit a Great Success
Friends and patrons of Princeton Pro Musica dressed up or dressed for the 2017 theme, Back to Broadway, and enjoyed a festive evening of cabaret entertainment, delicious hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, a sumptuous buffet, silent auction, raffles, and the ever-popular wine-pull. Singers of Princeton Pro Musica treated guests to a wonderful mix of solos, duets, and ensembles from hit Broadway favorites including Les Miserables, The Music Man, The Fantastics, Fiddler on the Roof, and more! From the opening ‘Wilkommen” from Cabaret to the finale “It’s a Grand Night for Singing” from State Fair, guests were tapping their toes and recalling wonderful productions they had attended. Guest soloist, baritone Kenneth Wasser, and the Peter Laufer Trio delighted fans performing additional Broadway selections. Everyone enjoyed a fabulous evening while helping Princeton Pro Musica to produce thrilling concerts.
