Cabaret in the Courtyard, the sophisticated and saucy nightclub event at Brucemore, will return for the eleventh year, August 8-10 and 15-17, at 7:30 p.m., for two back-to-back weekends you do not want to miss.
The ambience of the Brucemore Visitor Center courtyard will be transformed into a cabaret club with tables, chairs, twinkling lights, and stars on the stage and in the sky.
August 8 - 10: Christopher Johnstone, nationally performing singer-actor, will take the stage the first weekend. Career highlights include touring for South Pacific, performing with the Boston Pops, and holding recurring roles in All My Children.
August 15-17: Chase Garrett, voted “Best Local Act” by the Daily Iowan in 2011, began playing piano at age nine and by seventeen was performing professionally across the U.S. In his travels, he has shared the stage with some of today’s most influential blues, boogie woogie and jazz pianists. His style has grown into a diverse mix of boogie woogie, blues and swing. He has brought world class pianists to the Englert Theatre in Iowa City, IA for his annual Blues & Boogie Woogie Piano Stomp and has taught at blues and swing festivals across the country.
