Art for the Sake of Art

Yet a second post from Miss Claudia Hommel in Chicago. This one really caught my interest and sounds like a unique event, true to the style of our cabaret work here.

It is a collaboration with the Detroit Institute of Arts & her for their Friday Night Live series. It is being billed as Picasso and Matisse go to the Music Hall: an illustrated concert. Tying in to a touring exhibit, there are to be two concerts. One at 7:00 devoted to Matisse and one at 8:30 devoted to Picasso. Promised are a soundscape with songs of Yvette Guilbert, Edith Piaf, Erik Satie, Picasso, Parisian cabaret and Spanish art songs. 

It is next Friday, 1/25 @ the Detroit Institute with Claudia Hommel on vocals, pianist - Stefan Kukurugya, bass player - Jordan Schug,  & drummer/sax - Carl Cafagnaith

  1. Bonjour Joey,

    I am pleased to catch your eye and your interest. I came across your blog while researching my upcoming cabaret concert at the Detroit Institute of Arts.

    Perhaps we could interest the Minneapolis Museum of Art in bringing a similar concert to you? I have many friends in the Twin Cities and would love to perform and provide a master class for the Cabaret Network.

    Any suggestions? Don't hesitate to contact me at (773-509-9360 in Chicago).
