David Sabella Counter-Tenor David Sabella Sings "Those Come Hither Eyes" from Cousin Lucy, music by Jerome Kern. This song was written for Julian Eltinge, a world famous vaudeville and Broadway star of the early 1900's. Eltinge was best known for his portrayal of both the lead male and female characters in all of his Broadway shows, singing in both a tenor and soprano register. This performance was presented on the Faculty Recital at Montclair State University, as part of the North Eastern Regional Conference of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, March 2016.

David Sabella Hi Guys, Some schedule changes.... This coming week (March 7-11) is SPRING BREAK at MSU, so I am teaching in NYC on MONDAY, March 7. If you are looking to book a lesson soon, please consider booking on this day. Also, Friday, March 11 I am NOT able to teach, due to the NATS Eastern Regional Conference (also at MSU), at which I am presenting a workshop on Contemporary Belt, and volunteering throughout the weekend. And lastly, I am opening up Wednesday afternoons (4-7pm) for NJ and Online lessons. If you are looking for an NJ or online time Wednesday is a good time to consider. Thanks. I look forward to seeing you soon. David

David Sabella Dear Students - If you have any plans to put together your own Cabaret show (and I KNOW several of you do), then you need to come to tonight's benefit at the Metropolitan Room. I am singing, Caitlin McBride is singing and Joseph Macchia, who is the booking manager, has extended an offer to members of my studio, to do a show at the Met Room. This is a very unusual and extremely generous offer. And, tonight is a great opportunity to meet this amazing man and explore your own possibilities for presenting a show. You have to be IN IT TO WIN IT. I hope to see MANY of you there tonight at 7pm.
The Award winning benefit series Cabaret Cares is back for 2016. Our next production takes place on January 29th at 7PM. The evening called My Favorite Broadway will feature singers Susan Winter, Michael Osso,Skie Ocasio,David Sabella, Andrea Bell Wolff,Joie Bianco and Jack Bartholet Caitlin McBride. The evening will feature Tracy Stark as the musical director. $20 Cover 2 Bev Min The Metropolitan Room 34 West 22nd Street 212-206-0440
