It was standing room only at MonacoUSA’s cabaret evening at Stars’n’Bars on Tuesday, with guests were on their feet for most of the 2-hour show, dancing, clapping and swaying arm-in-arm to the music of popular films, from Putting on the Ritz (1930) to Trolls (2016).
The five artists performing – Colette Marx-Nielsen, Matt Firth, Paul Spicer, Marieke Van den Wall Bake and Alicia Sedgwick – have sung and danced at major venues throughout Europe and are now based in the South of France.
Special guests of the evening were organisers of the Monte Carlo Television Festival, who generously offered VIP passes to a lucky tombola winner.
MonacoUSA Director Annette Anderson said, “Tonight was all about community. Tonight, everybody in the room from the millionaire to a young student got a chance to dance and sing along to music that brings us together.”
More than a dozen team members of the TEDxMonteCarlo, which was held on November 11, were also on hand. Like the musical performances of the evening, both the TV Festival and TEDxMonteCarlo enjoy international acclaim but they equally welcome local residents to participate and enjoy.
