Elizabeth Sutton performing on stage.

After what seems like an eternal winter, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council is excited to present Spring: The Music of Open Windows, a cabaret-style celebration of all things spring, at the newly opened Hopewell Theater on April 21, 2018 from 7pm – 9:30pm. (CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS!)

The evening will feature entertainment by accomplished soprano Elizabeth Sutton, who will captivate guests with stories and piano-accompanied songs celebrating the collective relief that spring is finally here. Sutton, a Pennington resident, is a Professor of Voice at Westminster Choir College and Pennington resident. Critically acclaimed for her remarkable singing and stage presence, Sutton has debuted with opera companies and festivals throughout the United States, Italy, and Austria including the Caramoor International Music Festival, New Jersey Opera, Opera Cleveland, Skylight Opera Theater, American International Music School (A.I.M.S), and Lucca Opera Theater, Italy.

“We’re thrilled Elizabeth is performing at our first cabaret — she’s a real powerhouse,” said HV Arts Council president, Carol Lipson. “It’ll be an amazing night — a fun party, intimate cabaret seating, amazing entertainment, mingling, and a creative food experience.”


Through a creative partnership with Hopewell Borough’s The Brothers Moon, guests will discover cuisine-meets-art installation. Innovatively crafted and unconventionally served inspired bites will play up the fun and decorative side of spring in acreative, interactive, and delicious experience. Beer and wine will be served, as will the signature drink, “The Bees Knees,” a springtime favorite.

Plus, cabaret guests will have first-dibs and VIP access to exciting upcoming arts and culture events with the Arts Council’s “party and experience boards,” including cooking demonstrations and exclusive art tours, to name just a few.

Tickets can be purchased online (CLICK THIS LINK FOR TICKETS) — $125 general admission and $110 for HV Arts Council members. Proceeds help support and promote the arts in the greater Hopewell Valley.
