The stars were out at Lynbrook High School as members of the school’s Tri-M Music Honor Society hosted their annual Cabaret Night on Jan. 25. Administrators, board of education members, faculty, students, families and community members took their seats in the dimly lit Lynbrook High School cafeteria which was transformed into a cozy cabaret lounge in honor of the anticipated event.
Prior to the start of the evening, the Lynbrook High School brass ensemble performed for attendees, as well as during the interludes. Tri-M President Sam Cohen and Vice-President Benjamin Gagliardo emceed the event as they introduced their talented peers before they hit the spotlight. Students showcased their musical abilities which ranged from vocal, instrumental and dance performances. Each act received roars of applause from the audience.
Cabaret Night, which is organized by Tri-M members each year, gives students the opportunity to show off their musical talents, while raising money for local charities. This year’s event supported Daniel’s Music Foundation, a non-profit that provides free music programs for those with disabilities, and the Community Chest South Shore, an organization dedicated to supporting other local organizations to help neighbors in need.
