CARI BURDETT & ENSEMBLE
Presented by the South Okanagan Concert Society
Cari Burdett’s rich alto voice stirs the heart as she takes the audience around the world through song. She delivers a vibrant, genre-defying, fusion of jazz, folk, opera and world music; seamlessly blending multiple European languages with timeless, theatrical -air. Burdett’s style, ‘Dramatic Gypsy Cabaret’ is the culmination of years of study and performance. If you enjoy Ute Lemper, Edith Piaf and Nina Simone, you’ll love Cari’s unique interpretations of these great classics as well as her original compositions.Like her gypsy ancestors, Cari is a troubadour, performing and teaching across Canada, Europe, USA and China. Her multifaceted education includes classical voice, new music, opera, vocal improvisation, art song, dance, acting and musical theatre. She holds a music degree from McGill University, Montreal and a Master’s degree in Opera from the Royal Academy of Music, London. Cari joyously shares the fruits of her trainings through performances and teaching as Director of Lila Music Centre in Duncan, BC.
