Following the successful formula that has enchanted audiences for over 25 years, the Sammons Center for the Arts launched a new concert series, Sammons Cabaret. Staged in the traditional cabaret style, a singer accompanied by a pianist, the concerts feature standard cabaret repertoire including music from the Great American Song Book, Broadway tunes, torch songs and vocal standards. Sammons Cabaret is presented in the intimate setting of Kurth Hall to a limited audience. Concerts are held on the third Thursday of the month, February through May and September through December.

The fall 2016 season of Sammons Cabaret opens on Thursday, September 15, with Lorena and Teddy Davey. Diana Sheehan on October 20, Sheran Goodspeed Keyton on November 17, and Shelley Kenneavy on December 15 complete another season of top-notch entertainment. Each concert begins with a reception at 7:00 p.m., followed by the concert at 8:00 p.m.

Admission is $45 per person and includes valet parking, light appetizers, and assorted beverages. Sammons members receive a $5 per ticket discount. Tickets go on sale to Sammons members on July 25 and to the general public on August 15. Not a Sammons member? See below for information on how to join.
