Caitlin Mathes at the National Arts Club

by FoMCaitlin Manes National Arts ClubThis past Monday, my friend Nate invited me to go check out a recital at the National Arts Club on Gramercy Park South. It was the sort of high society gathering you might imagine, complete with free Prosecco and punch. But, far from being just another hoity-toidy affair, this recital featured the incredibly engaging Caitlin Mathes, who sang cabaret songs by Kurt Weill, Hans Eisler, Debussy and Satie, with all the moxie and deep-seated emotion of someone twice her age. According to the program notes, she's currently in the young singers program at the Portland Opera, which I'm sure will be a good thing for her career. But, selfishly, I'd much rather see her in settings like this. Keep an eye out for her.
