Drag Chanteuse Arnaldo! offers cabaret workshop

Arnaldo!
American-Style Cabaret
Workshop Performance
October 11, 7 PM
Julia's on Broadway


The Pacific Northwest Cabaret Association and Jizel Music of San Francisco are presenting their first collaboration, an American-style cabaret performance workshop in Seattle on October 9-11, culminating with a cabaret show, developed by the participants, at Julia's on Broadway.

"Cabaret is really all about the music," Arnaldo Inocentes, who performs as Arnaldo! Drag Chanteuse, told SGN. "If done right, it should be elegant, classy, and done with integrity."

Arnaldo and Linda Kosut, both recipients of Back Stage magazine's prestigious BISTRO award, which recognizes outstanding performances, accomplishments and contributions by members of the New York cabaret community, will co-teach the workshop alongside musical director Daryl Spadaccini. Performing for well over 10 years, Arnaldo is one of Seattle's most recognizable talents. Kosut, a San Francisco resident, has also been performing in cabaret rooms and jazz clubs throughout the country for the past 10 years.

Arnaldo knows cabaret. Known for his serious approach and beautiful stage appearance, the drag chanteuse is an expert in the history of American-style cabaret. According to Arnaldo, it evolved in the New York speakeasies and lounges, and was in its glory in the 1930s until the early 1970s. Major stars such as Liza Minnelli, Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler started and honed their crafts on intimate New York cabaret stages.

The workshop is intended for people at all levels and stage of performance development and experience. Arnaldo said participants are to be coached on areas such as lyric interpretation, engaging the audience, stage presence, microphone technique, creating and delivering patter, and building an entertaining cabaret show. In addition, he said, students will be taught the business of cabaret, such as how to work with venue owners, technical and musical directors, as well as promoting and marketing a show. "After all," said Arnaldo with a smile, "the second word in 'show business' is 'business.'"

The concert will be held at Julia's on Broadway, a venue that has become synonymous with topnotch entertainment. Tickets for October 11's 7 p.m., 90-minute, 20-song concert are $10 with a two-drink minimum. Julia's features a full bar, with an attractive and personable staff, and one of the best dinner menus on Capitol Hill. Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/81930.

"It's my dream that Seattle will one day have a vibrant cabaret community," said Arnaldo. "Venues such as Julia's are wonderful. There should be more of this in Seattle."

Arnaldo! Drag Chanteuse and Linda Kosut will perform at the concert as well. "This will be a very exciting weekend," Arnaldo told SGN. "The performances are going to be great."

The first workshop is limited to 10 participants. Currently, there are three positions still available. In order to qualify, participants must be able to sing or deliver a song, bring four songs to work on during the workshop, and provide their own wardrobe, accessories and makeup.
