Event Description

Brucemore’s sophisticated and saucy nightclub event, Cabaret in the Courtyard, will return for two back-to-back weekends of stars on the stage and on the sky, August 6-8 and 13-15 at 7:30 p.m. Since 2003, the lovely ambiance of the historic courtyard has been magically transformed into a cabaret club with tables, chairs, twinkling lights, and stars on the stage and in the sky. Cabaret in the Courtyard is sponsored by Bankers Trust, United Fire Group, and Corridor Business Journal.

Christopher Johnstone (August 6 – 8) is known for his unparalleled vocal versatility. He is equally at home in contemporary and classic music theater as he is with opera and classical music. A 1999 graduate of Cedar Rapids Jefferson High School, Christopher was a member of the school’s award-winning West Side Delegation Show Choir. He trained as an actor and opera singer at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, Tanglewood Music Center, The Glimmerglass Young American Artist Program, and The Oberlin in Italy Program. Christopher’s concerts span from Carnegie Hall to Capitol Hill and in between. He recently played a leading role on the first National Broadway Tour of Evita. He has been a guest soloist with numerous symphonies throughout the country, including the National Symphony and Boston Pops. Christopher was part of the seven-time, Tony Award winning Lincoln Center production of South Pacific that toured the U.S. and Canada. Christopher has also appeared on TV shows including The Young and the Restless, All My Children, Watch What’s Happening LIVE, and Personal Justice. He has modeled for clients such as Katy Perry, Ralph Lauren, DETAILS Magazine, and Chanel.
