On the evening of April 29, 2016, DMAE’s finest musicians and music teacher Sandy Meltzer held the annual Cabaret for a Cause event. For only $5 a ticket, all were welcome to join in the North Cafeteria for a night of music, food, and conversation.
“To me, Cabaret for a Cause is an event where musically dedicated students donate their time to help raise money for people who aren’t as fortunate as us.”
Created in 2010, Cabaret for a Cause became a tri-annual event in New York City, utilizing dance and music to promote their ultimate goal: to create an environment where young people can use their talents to fundraise for the less fortunate.
“To me, Cabaret for a Cause is an event where musically dedicated students donate their time to help raise money for people who aren’t as fortunate as us,” performer and sophomore Rachel Oh said.
This year’s event featured solos, duets, instrumental performances on piano and guitar, and even some original scores. Administrators, teachers, parents and friends who came to support the event enjoyed dinner while listening to the talented performers.
“This was our fourth Cabaret for a Cause. We don’t do it every year; it’s complicated,” music teacher Sandy Meltzer said.
Half of the proceeds this year went to the Make a Wish Foundation, and a portion of it was set aside for future music trips.
With the support of DMAE students and staff, the Cabaret for a Cause can hopefully become an established spring tradition on campus.
