Life's a cabaret
Mistlin Gallery offering series of shows dedicated to art patron

The Central California Art Association along with the Mistlin Gallery in Modesto are hosting the second in their cabaret series dedicated to the late art patron Grace Lieberman.

The second show in the cabaret series is set for 7 p.m. June 8 featuring Christine Capsuto-Shulman in “A Prelude to Summer!”

Capsuto-Shulman will perform popular works from Broadway and opera, accompanied by Elizabeth Neff. She is a multi-faceted artist in the world of opera, musical theater, dance and acting. 

“Christine’s the ‘the ultimate package’ as defined through her commanding stage presence, effortless vocal prowess, impressive musicianship skills, quirky humor and graceful poise, creating a deep and moving theatrical experience,” said David Schroeder.

Shulman is a strong advocate for the arts in education, and teaches voice lessons at her San José studio. Recently, she founded her own princess party company, Princess Party Fantasies, that educates young children about being outstanding individuals, expressing themselves through art, and contributing to their community.

The series will continue on Aug. 31 with “The Rat Pack in Review” featuring dancers from Central West Ballet, choreographed by Rene Daveluy. On Nov. 23 the fourth in the series will be “The Passion of Flamenco” featuring David Chapman on Spanish guitar.

The proceeds from these events are being used to fund CCAA’s cooperative community endeavors with other arts groups, art education, and for the development of a Grace Lieberman Young Artist scholarship fund.

Tickets are available at Mistlin Gallery or online at for $50 VIP seating, $30 general seating and $20 for students. Ticket price includes beverages and delicious desserts.
