Do the popular Broadway tunes get your toes a-tapping? Then, come to “Double ‘A’ Cabaret” to hear St. Mary’s College of Maryland students’ renditions of such familiar songs as “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man” from “Showboat” and “Maria” from “West Side Story” at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, and again Saturday, Feb. 18, in the college’s Montgomery Hall, room 25. The evenings are free, thanks to a gift from Arthur Zamanakos, so audiences can enjoy the music he and his wife, Alice Fleury Zamanakos, loved during their storybook marriage.
“It’s an amazing experience, getting to work on repertoire that the music department does not usually get the opportunity to cover,” said Jonathan Wagner, a senior English major, one of the singers chosen during auditions in December. Larry Vote, in his first year returning fulltime to the music department faculty from being college provost, is the director assisted by pianist Brian Lillie, accompanist in musical theater at Catholic University.
