Cabaret celebrates villains and graduating music students

R.D Parker Collegiate’s senior concert band and choir, as well as the VocoMotion vocal jazz group and the Adrenaline jazz ensemble kicked off the end-of-school-year concert season June 5 with the music program’s 33rd-annual Cabaret.

A fundraiser for the music program and a chance to salute soon-to-be-graduating music students, the 2018 Cabaret featured a theme of “Villains” and many of the singers and musicians dressed up as famous villains themselves for the concert, which featured songs from movies and stage musicals including Star Wars, Sweeney Todd, 101 Dalmations and Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
