November 2, 2018 - AU CABARET FRANÇAIS AT HAPPY HOLLOW COUNTRY CLUB

Au Cabaret Français was a beautiful night of music, friendship, delicious food, and an intriguing silent auction. Chanteuse Anne-Marie Kenny performed an incredible variety of French chansons in an evening cabaret. She was accompanied on piano by Opera Omaha’s Head of Music Sean Kelly, with young Daniel Denenberg serving as the evening’s MC. The proceeds from this fundraising event went to support the programs, events, and classes of the Alliance Française d’Omaha.
