Coming Back to the Convention!
"The Most Important Cabaret Event of the Year" - American Way Magazine
The Mabel Mercer Foundation presents its flagship Cabaret Convention showcases around the country and abroad. Since its inception in 1989, the Convention has hosted more than a thousand performers, all of whom work in their own ways to keep alive the tradition of cabaret. (Among those who have participated in these extraordinary concerts are Michael Feinstein, Jack Jones, Andrea Marcovicci, Julie Wilson, Steve Ross, Margaret Whiting, Christine Andreas, Maureen McGovern, Liliane Montevecchi, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Ann Hampton Callaway, Gregory Generet, Karen Akers, Jeff Harnar, Wesla Whitfield, Tony DeSare, Nellie McKay, Paula West, Klea Blackhurst, and Barbara Carroll.) The Foundation continues to keep many tickets for each performance priced at an incredible $25 per seat plus outreach to senior centers and complimentary tickets to high schools in the greater New York area. Our goal is to provide universal access to these incomparable entertainers and their timeless repertoire.
