After moving to Manhattan in 1999, Pam immersed herself in the vibrant vocal scene, taking advantage of the opportunity to pursue a love of show tunes and the great American songbook. Her solo cabaret debut, �Dreams & Carousels� in the fall of 2001 launched a new romance with the intimate cabaret stages of NYC. Since then, she has appeared in a variety of showcases, club acts, special guest spots and benefits, including appearances in the grand ballroom of the famed Waldorf-Astoria and the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Pam has had the honor of working with such luminaries as the multi MAC (Manhattan Association of Clubs and Cabarets) and Bistro Award winners, Jerry Scott and the late, great Dick Gallagher, cabaret coach Ron Cohn, stage director Stephanie Scott, conductor and pianist, Giacomo Franci, Tony Award winner Tovah Feldshuh, opera singer Lucine Amara and cabaret legend, Julie Wilson. Her ongoing training continues with Maestro Eric Trudel of Yale University and soprano Valerie Sorel.
In 2003, Pam co-founded The Gotham Girls, whose show �Take Two!� (the duet show) received critical acclaim and played to sold-out houses at several NYC cabaret rooms. In addition, Pam had the honor of performing the world debut of New York City songwriter Karen Benedetto�s inspirational piece, �Happy New Year� in NYC. In February 2004, Karen�s song, �One� received the distinction of being selected as a top ten finalist in the 2004 International Song of Peace Contest held annually in Tipperary, Ireland. Pam was thrilled to present �One� on April 17th at the grand finals at The Excel Theatre in Tipperary Town, as well as participating in various media and live radio events throughout the weekend with local politicians and dignitaries.
At The Carnegie Museum�s Diamond Dazzler black tie gala in November 2003, accompanied by Pittsburgh�s Jeffrey Cubeta, Pam provided the musical entertainment on the cabaret stage in the Music Hall Foyer for the largest crowd in the history of the annual event. (see Press Page for full story).
On Sunday, April 25, 2004, Pam presented �An Evening of Song � From Classical to Cabaret� for The Bethel Park Concert Series. The concert committee, based in Pittsburgh, PA, sponsors two performances annually. Longtime friend, pianist and choir director, Edward J. Matelan accompanied Pam for the show.
A regular featured soloist at the Chelsea Community Church, Pam also entertains at private and corporate affairs in Manhattan, New Jersey and the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas. She recently joined the ranks of Broadway and cabaret singers who perform in Manhattan, Brooklyn and The Bronx with Vocal Ease, Inc., a non-profit group dedicated to presenting professional cabaret shows at hospitals, senior centers, community groups and retirement homes.
