December 2017

It's that time of year again - singing every day!  My favourite singing season.  I'll be singing with my carolling trios all over the city this month and it's always fun to see familiar faces stop by for a song or two.  So, here's where you'll find us if you want to hear some fun musical arrangements and classic Christmas songs.

SUMMER 2017!

This summer brings a new and exciting endeavour to Berry Entertaining - a duo!!  I've been looking for just the right person to partner up with to create a singing duo and I've finally found her!  Martha has been one of my favourite carollers in my company (Season's Singers) for the past three years and now we've put together a fantastic repertoire of songs.  Our repertoire is a variety of songs from the 1950s to 2017!  We'll be singing without accompaniment and/or with the ukulele and all in harmony.

"Harmony Honeys" have already performed at Science World, at Queen Elizabeth Park and at Art in Bloom and The Mad Hatter's Tea as part of the New Westminster Culture Crawl.  Stay tuned for future performance dates!

Check out the Berry Entertaining Youtube channel for some clips of our performances.  (And a picture in the Gallery!)

AN EVENING OF BERRY PICKING!  A ukulele concert and fundraiser on Tuesday, August 9, 2016

My first ukulele concert was a huge success!  Lots of positive feedback about the music, the stories and the atmosphere - all of which made it a really fun evening!  And it was another sold-out show which is very exciting!!

The evening's program included a couple Beatles tunes, a few Patsy Cline classics, a little Dixie Chicks as well as some lesser-known comedic songs and a few original tunes.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the musical selections and, as a performer, it's always fun to be able to make people laugh - which I did!

Another great thing about getting a sold-out audience is that I'm donating a portion of all ticket sales to the Red Cross to help the people of Fort McMurray.

All in all, a great night!

Another fantastic season of singing and dancing came to a close on June 13, 2016 with our year-end recital.  It was a great evening of music and dance.  The Broadway Choir, a co-ed community choir, and The C Notes, an all-female ensemble were joined by the B Notes, an all-male ensemble, performing for the first time.  The audience was entertained with such songs as 'Hello Dolly', 'Tears In Heaven', 'Up On The Roof', 'Brotherhood of Man', 'My Guy', 'Count On Me' and 'Cecilia', to name a few.

I was lucky to have a fun group of women in my tap class this term and delighted they wanted to participate in our recital.  So a small but enthusiastic group of tappers performed a dance to Anna Kendrick's 'When I'm Gone', the Cups song.

To close the show, the Broadway Choir and the C Notes performed a 7-minute medley of doo-wop songs called "Forever Doo Wop" which was met by a resounding chorus of applause!
