Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion ran during the day
concurrently with Chicago Cabaret Week at night!
Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion, May 8-16, 2022
While the evenings were filled with vocal performances as part of Chicago Cabaret Week, daytime was dedicated to artistic growth and development. The Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion (#CPCx) Conference held masterclasses and workshops with Chicago-, New York- and Paris-based instructors. Performers honed their craft, connected more deeply to their material, and built relationships with other performers.
Classes and workshops
The May 16 finale concert, “Josephine Baker and the Legacy of Fervor”, co-presented with the Alliance Française, celebrated the great performer’s legacy. A team of French artists, including Baker’s one-time private secretary, Michèle Barbier, and artists from Black Voices in Cabaret, performed.
