Café Society is yet another of the innovative 21st century concepts of experiencing the arts – socializing and challenging our intellect…all simultaneously and in a more complete fashion!
Taking once again from history, we reach this time into the late-19th century and draw from a culture characterized by socializing in bistros, coffee shops, and night clubs. These were sometimes extravagantly frivolous and sometimes intensely intellectual in nature, but always high spirited and exhilarating! The socialites who regularly frequented these fashionable night spots became known as Café Society.
Café Society is based upon all of this and more! We continue to strive to fulfill our mission statement of highlighting the multi-cultural diversity of our community in order that we may bring people of our wonderfully rich and diverse cultures together as One… to look at our world from the same perspective as opposed to having the restrictions of ethnic and cultural barriers…and have fun at the same time!
The Chihuly Gallery at WMODA is the spectacular venue for our Café Society. Experience the mystery and magic of glass at this stunning installation of Dale Chihuly’s work. Chihuly is the world’s foremost glass artist and his awesome Macchia series celebrates his remarkable powers of innovation and imagination. Also enjoy the Carnival & Cabaret exhibition at WMODA which celebrates Café Society in the Jazz Age.
This evening Jose will introduce his newest protégé, Miss Elli Clarke as the featured vocalist, and will “collaborate” in total ensemble-style presentations of historical musical masterpieces! “Blessed with a sultry and expressive voice and the perfect natural instinct for classic jazz and American standards…Miss Elli Clarke is the quintessential cabaret stylist.” -Willie Riddle, Venetian Arts Society
