Another year, another birthday…. or two! Karen Oxorn is delighted to return to GigSpace to celebrate her birthday with jazz lovers in the Ottawa area. She’ll be accompanied by guitarist extraordinaire Tim Bedner and they’re counting on you to create the set list! Karen often receive suggestions for repertoire when she performs and so has decided to take it one step further and host an almost all-request evening.
Please visit Karen’s website at www.karenoxorn.com. On the Home Page you’ll find a link to a list of jazz standards from which you can select up to five (5) songs that you’d like to hear Karen and Tim perform at the concert. It could be something you’ve heard her sing before or one of your favourite tunes that you would like them to try out. Karen will put together a set list from your suggestions and include a few of her own ideas. You can also include a song that isn’t on the list. And if you don’t get a chance to email Karen your choices ahead of time, bring them along to the concert and she will try to fit them into the show.
As a special treat, Karen and Tim will be joined by the wonderful vocalist Dominique Forest who also celebrates a birthday in January. Dominique will offer a sneak preview of original material from her debut CD, C’est à moi, which will be officially released the following week at the National Arts Centre Fourth Stage.
A portion of ticket sales for the concert will be donated to the GigSpace Grand Piano Fundraiser!
