Continuing our tradition of presenting a fall season preview cabaret for our donors and patrons, this year’s Hot Mic Cabaret will be: “Diabolical Divas!” Kick off your spooky season on Thursday, October 26, and enjoy performances by TCGMC singers who will present songs from the darker characters of music.
Also, learn a little about our upcoming season from TCGMC artistic director, Dr. Gerald Gurss. The event will begin at 6pm with hosted wine and snacks, with performances starting at 7pm. No ticket required, so please join us at Grace Trinity Church in Minneapolis for a “diabolical” evening of music and fellowship!
