Carol Stein's Spotlight Cabaret "Travels with Carol"
The Winter Park Playhouse Spotlight Cabaret Series features the immensely popular and uniquely talented Ms. Carol Stein on Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16. Premiering her new solo cabaret "Travels With Carol," she will take you on a musical adventure with, as expected, Carol at the piano and microphone!
Carol was born in Miami and began classical piano studies at the age of four. She received her Master's Degree from the University of Florida. Her travels as a performer and musician have taken her around the globe for many years and include performances at Carnegie Hall in New York, Montreux Palace in Switzerland, The Oasis Lounge in Hong Kong, Avalon European Dinner Cruises and Walt Disney World where she is the famous piano lady at The Rose and Crown Pub in the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot.
Carol is known for her improvisational style of composing and arranging pieces spontaneously during a live performance to turn a melody "inside-out" into the various styles of say Bach, then Duke Ellington, and then perhaps, a bassa nova style - whatever she decides in the moment - all using the same piece of music.
Ms. Stein also performs as a soloist with her jazz quintet, has been a guest solo artist with the Spacecoast Pops Orchestra, and was the featured pianist with The Jacksonville Symphony for the Marvin Hamlisch tribute. Carol has recorded four solo albums in the various styles of jazz, ballads, swing and her own compositions.
General Admission tickets are $20 plus a one drink minimum. Once sold out, a limited number of "Standing Room Only" tickets are available for $10. Seating is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended.
Doors open at 6:30 pm for a 7:30 pm cabaret. Call The Winter Park Playhouse box office for tickets 407-645-0145 or purchase online.
