Crooners, Cabaret, and Chocolate!

February 8th 7:00


A Valentine’s Celebration with the Nancy Tripp Quartet


“Crooners, Cabaret, and Chocolate” returns after a success last year! 

Broadway musical performer, Nancy Tripp, will be joined by a quartet of instrumentalists to

celebrate Valentine’s Day as part of the Performing Arts program presented by the Center for the

Arts – Lake Sunapee Region on Saturday February 8, at 7 pm. Whipple Town Hall on Main

Street in New London, NH will be transformed into a cabaret for this evening of “Crooners,

Cabaret and Chocolate.” Last years performance was a “smashing hit.” Audience members

danced, sang, enjoyed a bit of the bubbly, and of course yummy chocolate. A perfect evening

for you and that special someone in your life to enjoy.

Before becoming a professional singer in New York City in both the worlds of opera and musical

theater, Ms. Tripp studied for her master’s degree in voice and piano at Manhattan School of

Music. Her resume includes six Broadway musicals, an off Broadway play, dozens of cabaret

and nightclub performances in New York City, development work with Ray Bradbury and

Jonathan Tunick at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center; performances in leading roles at the

Goodspeed Opera House, the Minnesota Opera, the Lake George Opera Festival, the Chautauqua

Opera Festival (starring as Kate in “Kiss Me Kate” with John Reardon), and performing many

leading roles in regional theaters.

A “don’t miss” program and evening for an adult only audience. Nancy Tripp and her quartet

will present music from crooners and yes, there will be a dance floor once again.

Tickets for this evening’s event can be purchased on line at,

Morgan Hill Bookstore or Tatewell Galleries in New London, NH. Reservations are required.
