Broadway and Hollywood In Holiday Program
AN ANNUAL TRADITION: Katie Welsh ends her Fall Cabaret Series at the Arts Council of Princeton with a special program on December 8.
Singer Katie Welsh will end her Fall Cabaret Series at the Arts Council of Princeton with “Happy Holidays! From Broadway & Hollywood” on Saturday, December 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Welsh’s “informative cabaret” approach provides some insights between songs. As she describes it, “So many great seasonal songs, from ‘Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas’ to ‘Silver Bells’ became famous as standalone standards but originated in musicals on stage and screen. This concert is a fun opportunity to not only enjoy your favorite holiday tunes, but also learn a bit more about their original contexts and backstories.”
In addition to performing in venues and at private events in the Princeton area, Welsh has also been seen in New York at Feinstein’s/54 Below, Don’t Tell Mama, The Duplex Cabaret Theatre, the Metropolitan Room, BroadwayCon, and the Princeton Club of New York. She is a graduate of Princeton University, where she first began developing her informative cabaret concept.
Pianist David Pearl will accompany Welsh. Pearl has performed in many of New York’s venues and collaborates frequently with musicians in the jazz and classical community.
Tickets are $15 and are available at Eventbrite.com or for cash at the door. The Arts Council of Princeton is located at 102 Witherspoon Street. The Music & Theater Collective is producing this series; additional information is available by calling (609) 915-7889.
