Fall Virtual Cabaret

Vanessa Moats '22, Staff Writer

On October 21, Mrs. Caceres hosted the first virtual cabaret of the year. As a performer in the cabaret, this was a new experience for me. I have participated in two other cabarets in-person, so this one was a little different. Prior to the cabaret, each performer recorded themselves singing the song of their choice. Since the theme was Movie Musicals, many of the songs came from Disney musicals. I chose “Speechless” from Aladdin and had such a fun time  recording the song. Other songs ranged from “On the Steps to the Palace” from Into the Woods, to “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid, to “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again” from The Phantom of the Opera, and many more. In all, there were 18 performers who represented all grade levels. Mrs. Caceres did a wonderful job putting all of the pieces together and making it so enjoyable to watch. She even made a program with clickable links to give performers fan mail! I am so glad that we were still able to have a cabaret even though it was a new experience for all of us. Hopefully, we will be able to perform songs in person later in the year. I cannot wait until the next cabaret!
