LEXINGTON, Ky.—Transylvania University’s vocal ensembles will present An Evening at the Cabaret: A Night at the Movies, on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 29 and 30, at 7:30 p.m. in Carrick Theater. Tickets are $5 and all proceeds go toward Transy’s Hope for Haiti relief efforts. The box office will be open for ticket reservations Monday, Jan. 25-Friday, Jan. 29, from 12:30-3 p.m. The phone number is (859) 233-8601.

“Income from ticket sales traditionally goes to the choral program, in particular for tours,” said Gary Anderson, professor of music and director of Transylvania’s choral programs. “But with the devastation in Haiti, this change of funding direction seems appropriate. The choral ensemble members are enthusiastic about the event being a fundraiser for Haiti this year.”

An Evening at the Cabaret, featuring the Transylvania Choir, the Transylvania Singers, the Pioneer Voices, Transy Boys A Capella and several soloists, will include a variety of songs from films, spanning multiple decades and styles. Selections include songs from Chicago, O Brother Where Art Thou, Fame and many others.
