“Freedom” by Cliff Joseph

If you want to use the power and intimacy of cabaret to advance the role of Black voices in our society, our roster is open to you. African-American performers and our collaborators are welcome!

African-American performers and venues are invited to respond to the call by writing to BVIC@workinginconcert.org. Tell us about your experience on stage, include a short bio and headshot, and let us know how you wish to contribute to this work.

Black Voices in Cabaret is facilitated by Working In Concert, a not-for-profit performing arts incubator, facilitator, and connector for collaborative projects embracing musical genres—cabaret, opera and classical vocal arts, theatrical and popular song. Our goal is to reflect on stage and “in the house” the great diversity of Chicago’s population and the paths that bring us together.
