Vocal and instrumental stylings for all occasions
Private Lessons ~ Private Parties ~ Programs ~ Receptions ~ Concerts
Experience: A professional accordionist and vocalist, I like playing and singing for people of all ages, especially while strolling and taking requests. I am available for evening, weekend, and long-term engagements.
Enjoyment: Audiences enjoy the continental atmosphere I create with popular ethnic songs and light operatic arias…and they find gaiety swaying to lusty drinking songs, singing favorites from both sides of the Atlantic.
Satisfaction: I am always interested in the group’s expectations and reasons for coming together; I enjoy playing specific pieces to fit the occasion, given adequate notice.
Audience Participation Encouraged: I have songsheets for audiences to sing with me in French, German, Italian, Spanish and Yiddish; for children’s gatherings; and for a variety of faith traditions’ seasonal holidays. (links below)
Costumed Events: My background in costume history and construction, lets me appear in continental European dress, or evening attire for receptions and festivals.
New Works: I enjoy researching specific works and learning new material. My multi-lingual repertoire of popular, semi-classical, classical and ethnic music is completely memorized; strolling and taking requests are specialties.
