Hey ALL you cabaret people!!!
Whilst…yes, I said it…I was in Edinburgh the first year I had the great honour of meeting and spending time with Erv Raible who has been running the Yale Cabaret Conference for many many many years. The teachers include cabaret luminaries such as Tovah Feldshuh, Jason Graae, Julie Wilson and Sharon McKnight…it really is an amazing happening.
The Cabaret Conference is auditioning here for it’s 2012 session in Toronto this weekend on the 17th at my fave place, Buddies in Bad Times!
Some Amazing Canadians have gone down and done the conference…and loved it…Shawn Hitchens, Teresa Tova and, the Edinburgh bound Michael Hughes.
So, if you want to explore cabaret seriously…this may be the thing for you…here is the info!!

At Yale University
CELEBRATING OUR 10THANNIVERSARY
JULY 27 – AUGUST 5, 2012
Erv Raible, Executive Director/Artistic Director, takes great pride in announcing the 10THAnniversary of the International Cabaret Conference at Yale University. The International Cabaret Conference at Yale University is being developed in conjunction with the Yale School of Drama/Yale Repertory Theater. Several conference sessions will be held in the facilities of the Yale School of Drama/Yale Repertory Theater, including the recently opened Iseman Theater.
Alexander C. Kafka of Washington DC’s national publication The Chronicle of Higher Education quotes Dean James Bundy of the Yale School of Drama, proclaiming the International Cabaret Conference at Yale University to be “consonant with our core work.”
The Tenth Annual International Cabaret Conference at Yale University will be held July 27 – August 5, 2012, and is an internationally focused, nine-day teaching program that offers an intensive look at the art of cabaret performance technique, and trains professionals for the live entertainment industry. The Great American Songbook will be addressed and promoted in its entirety, from its origins in the late 19th century through the classic pop standards of the 1930s and 40s to today’s international contemporary cabaret, musical theater, jazz, pop and classical music.
All classes are conducted in English. Our students have come from across the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Ireland, Dubai, and the United Kingdom.
Our prestigious 2012 faculty currently includes: Tovah Feldshuh, Jason Graae, Carol Hall, George Hall, Laurel Massé, Sally Mayes, Amanda McBroom, Sharon McNight, Erv Raible, and Julie Wilson; piano faculty includes Tex Arnold, Shelly Markham and Alex Rybeck. Pamela Tate is the Associate Director.
The conference consultants/lecturers include: Fred Voelpel (Image Consultant), Tex Arnold (Musical Directors), Matt Berman (Light and Sound Technician), George Hall (English Music Hall), David Finkle (reviewer for Bistro Awards.com, Huffington Post and The village Voice), Michael Kerker (ASCAP, Director of Musical Theater and Cabaret), Carol Hall (Songs) and Pamela Tate (History of Cabaret)..
The award-winning faculty, and renowned consultants, will guide thirty-six students in a collaborative process of critical refining and honing. The conference will feature classes and lectures covering cabaret performance technique, acting for singers, lyric interpretation, focus and concentration, act structure, act writing, material research, and comedic development, to musical director and director relations, arranging, orchestration, composer/lyricist relations, and image consultation. Examine the final stages of act presentation through club relations, marketing, press and public relations, to the technical language of light and sound, representation, booking, management and personal networking; with an emphasis on integration into the international live entertainment community.
Public performances allow the students to observe first-hand the performance techniques of professionals in the industry, while continuing to study those of their peers on a daily performance basis. At the Stars of Tomorrow Cabaret Conference Curtain Call the students will perform, demonstrating what they have accomplished in their nine days at the International Cabaret Conference at Yale University.
The Cabaret Conference is held on the historic Yale University campus in New Haven, Connecticut USA, renowned as one of the world’s finest educational facilities, and known for its spectacular architecture, world-class museums and libraries.
