“Music at the Westin” Event Features Chicago Cabaret Artist
The Cayman Arts Festival is known for its “Music in the Library” events, but this Thursday, October 21, it is moving to the Seven Mile Strip to become “Music in the Westin”.
Professional cabaret singer Caryn Caffarelli, accompanied by Jonathan Taylor on piano, will take the audience through her show “MOMufactured: Made Better through Motherhood” from 6pm to 7pm. It’s a parental journey explored through song, including a variety of genres ranging from musical theater to pop.
That being said, you don’t have to have kids to appreciate the talents of Caffarelli and Taylor. It is an event that will appeal to all music and theater lovers, and which continues CAF’s commitment to creating extraordinary performances for its fans.
Caffarelli is a professional singer and actress from Chicago who now lives in Grand Cayman.
She has appeared on stage around the world, including one summer at the Karl May Festspiele in Elspe, Germany. While in Chicago, her favorite musical productions included Anne Egerman in “A Little Night Music”, Velma Kelly in “Chicago”, as well as “Sweeney Todd” and “the other” Phantom by Maury Yeston.
Caffarelli also sings with the award-winning Acts Of Kindness cabaret to benefit local nonprofits, and with Chicago’s premier female a cappella quartet – Route 66.
She is a member of the Actor’s Equity Association and the Chicago Cabaret Professionals.
Originally from Manchester, UK, Taylor has been a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, conductor and educator for over a decade.
After studying composition at the Royal Northern College of Music in the UK, he became the Music Director of the Greater Manchester Police Band and a freelance professional.
In 2017, he took the opportunity to move to Grand Cayman. He quickly became the Music Director of the Cayman National Orchestra, a member of the Singrays vocal group, and a member of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Band. He then founded the Cayman Wind Symphony, a wind orchestra designed to provide the best music students on the island with the opportunity to perform at the highest level.
