A sophisticated and highly entertaining show performed and presented by three time Mo Award winning Australian vocalist Karen Beckett.
Joining her on stage is Karen’s carefully selected seven-piece orchestra featuring Australia’s finest musicians many of whom played regularly on The Midday Show. Orchestrations are true to Streisand’s original arrangements and will delight people of all ages who appreciate fine music.
“Songs of Streisand and Friends” allows Karen to bring her own distinctive flare and personality to the stage. This is not a parody of Streisand but rather a joyous celebration of her greatest hits including “People”, “The Way We Were”, “Evergreen” and many, many more. The ‘Friends’ in this concert include tributes to the hit songs of Liza Minelli, Judy Garland, Edith Piaf and Julie Andrews. Every song is a well chosen crowd pleaser performed by one of Australia’s finest female singers. Karen Beckett’s “Songs of Streisand and Friends” is inspiring, highly entertaining, and the virtuosity is world class.
