CABARET IS BACK!

We are enthusiastically looking forward to the return of our cabaret-seating format, November 20 thru May 6, in the Pillsbury Theatre at the 560 Music Center. The first concert, “Chamber Music For People In A Hurry,” has a program theme affectionately borrowed from delightful astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s book Astrophysics for People in a Hurry. Libations to enjoy during the concerts will be available for purchase from STL Barkeep. On December 4 we celebrate the seasons with “Holiday Wingding,” conducted by Darwin Aquino. Choose from available cabaret concerts tables and get e-tickets HERE.
