Event Description

Cabaret in the Courtyard, the sophisticated and saucy nightclub event at Brucemore, will return for the eleventh year for an evening of stars on the stage and in the sky.

Amy Stoner (August 13 – 15) is no stranger to the stage. She has performed throughout the Midwest, including at Cabaret clubs in Chicago and St. Louis. Amy recently debuted her own cabaret show “Amy at the Opus: “The Story Goes On” at Orchestra Iowa’s Opus Concert Café, selling out both shows in advance of her opening. She has performed with the likes of cabaret legend Marilyn Maye and Tony award winning actress Faith Prince. She has been a featured guests in Lynne Rothrock’s Christmas Cabaret the past four years. Earlier this year she was featured in The Gazette for being invited to perform with other national cabaret stars in a Guinness World Record attempt for the world’s longest variety show in New York City. Reviewer for The Gazette, Rob Cline, wrote, “She is a lovely singer…but Stoner does more than nail the songs. She’s a fine actress, as well, and successfully brings the audience along on her emotional and romantic journey.” Amy attended Simpson College, focusing on Vocal Performance, as well as Kirkwood Community College, focusing on Vocal Jazz. She also studied for three years with Karla Goettel.

Amy will be joined onstage by her music director Luke Viertel, who will play piano and provide additional vocals, Richard Wagor on bass, Gerard Estella on guitar, and Greg Kanz on drums.
