This evening promises to entertain, with songs from the musical theater canon, new and old. Members of Harmonium who also have a passion and talent for musical theater will perform songs from favorites such as Rodgers & Hammerstein and Sondheim as well as new hit makers Pasek & Paul. The repertoire swings from hilarious to stirring. This is a night of music that promises to rival anything you may hear on the other side of the Hudson.

The cabaret offers an exciting evening of music, wine, coffee, and sweet and savory treats. In addition, a silent auction and wine pull will be held before the performance and during intermission. Participants may bid on great prizes such as vacation homes, arts and cultural events, professional services, gift baskets, and certificates to restaurants and other local businesses.  Doors open at 7 pm so that attendees will have time to browse the terrific offerings. All proceeds will support Harmonium’s mission to inspire and transform our community through music.
