The lights fade on, the maestro takes his seat behind the eighty-eight ivory keys ready to play the first piece, and the audience listens eagerly. The show has started.
Lynn’s first Café de Cave of the year was quite a hit among the student body who flocked into the Schmidt Family Studio located in the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson Wold Performing Arts Center for a musical extravaganza.
Some of the students did not even know what to expect.
“I literally had no idea what I was walking into,” said Bianca Bonomo, sophomore. “I knew it was going to be something entertaining.”
This Café de Cave was themed with Broadway Musicals. A repertoire of classics were performed by faculty and staff, and the audience had plenty of nostalgic moments while listening in their seats.
“It was great,” said Ali Fox, freshman. “Everybody in the show was fun to work with.”
Some of the students who performed were not strangers when it comes to performing in front of an audience.
Of course, in every Café de Cave, the conservatory sends one of their many talented pianists to accompany the performers.
“This is actually my first time being in such a Broadway Music Show and I love it,” said Chen Liang, a junior who was the maestro who played for this years performances. “All the performers are really good and talented, and they all worked very hard.”
He goes on to say that he would definitely play for this performance again.
This night was a night that had a little bit of everything. Many students and residents of Boca are already looking forward to the next Café de Cave and they are most likely going to get an even better show than the last.
