Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion ran during the day
concurrently with Chicago Cabaret Week at night!

Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion, May 8-16, 2022 

While the evenings were filled with vocal performances as part of Chicago Cabaret Week, daytime was dedicated to artistic growth and developing our profession together. The Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion (#CPCX) Conference held masterclasses and workshops with Chicago, New York and Paris-based instructors. Performers honed their craft, connected more deeply to their material, and built relationships with other performers.

The CPCX Conference concluded with a Showcase Concert demonstrating the results of a week of intense work by conference attendees. The May 14 group bow is pictured above.

The May 16 finale concert “Josephine Baker and the Legacy of Fervor”, co-presented by the Alliance Française, celebrated the great performer’s legacy with a team of French performers, including Baker’s one-time private secretary Michèle Barbier, and artists from Black Voices in Cabaret.

Chicago Paris Cabaret Connexion 2023 will meet in France!
