Cabaret culture began in Paris in the early 1880s. The Parisian cabaret was a salon where artists, writers, singers, and composers could share unique, short songs and stories in a casual setting while the audience enjoyed food and wine. Cabaret culture quickly spread to other parts of France and Germany, however the history books tell us that cabaret culture wasn’t in full bloom in America until New York City cabarets became popular in the 1970’s.
New Hope, however, had its own unique cabaret history starting in the 1950s at Chez Odette’s and continuing to this day at the Phillips’ Mill. The 2019 Forum ~A Celebration of Cabaret~ will present New Hope’s unique history through the songs and stories of two talented performers, Lori Clipner Hynson and Fred Miller, both of whom will be celebrating their long history and involvement with Phillips’ Mill cabaret events.
