Chorale’s annual cabaret this weekend

The South Metro Chorale’s 2014 cabaret fundraiser is themed “The Late Night Show with SMC” and will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday.

The 40-member Prior Lake-based community choir often focuses on the classic works of Handel, Haydn or Mozart, but the annual cabaret show features a variety show of popular and contemporary music from the 1920s to the 2000s prepared and presented by chorus members as soloists, duets and quartets, and sprinkled with humor by comedian Doug Anderson.

The shows are preceded by a silent auction at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. There also will be a cash raffle, games, appetizers and drinks.

The shows are at the Lake­ville Area Arts Center, 20965 Holyoke Av., Lakeville. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors. See www.southme for more information.
