Carol Welsmen Comes to Festival Place
For her latest album, For You, Canadian Jazz vocalist and pianist Carol Welsmen turned to her fans on social media to help select the tracks. The result is an intimate affair, spanning songs in multiple languages including Spanish ("Besame Mucho"), French ("Les Feuilles Mortes") and Italian ("Ti Guardero Nel Cuor"). Material is also drawn from the Great American Songbook, and Welsman takes to classics like "Skylark," "The Shadow of Your Smile" and "My Funny Valentine" from angles of adoration and invention.
This intimate evening will feature just Carol and her piano in a classic cabaret performance. Festival Place continues to be Alberta's #1 Presenter of Professional Artists. The 2017/2018 season showcased an eclectic mix of over 80 incredibly talented performers. The 2018/2019 season carries on the same ambitious standard of entertainment, with over 50 performances already scheduled between September 2018 and April 2019, with new shows added throughout the year.
