Cabaret at Germano’s mission is to promote and support the arts in Baltimore by offering local, regional and emerging artists a casual and intimate venue in which they can interact with their audiences. They also welcome performers from outside the region who desire to contribute to our thriving arts community. Notable artists who have performed at the Cabaret include iconic composer, Jimmy Webb, Broadway character actress, Mary Stout, and jazz virtuosos, Frank Vignola, Howard Alden and Nicki Parrott.

Germano Fabiani and Cyd Wolf, owners of Germano’s, are the parents of BSA alumnae, Alessandra and Francesca Fabiani, who, along with the family’s love of the arts, inspired these BSA student cabaret performances.
