Artist / Program Description
Margaret Carlson has been compared to Julie Andrews and Maureen McGovern with her elegant musical style and stage presence. “Exquisite phrasing and uncommonly intelligent lyric reading…a first-rate vocalist” (Chicago Tribune). Margaret’s programs are a mix of melodic beauty and fun. She can be heard at music festivals, with symphonies, and as a performer and clinician at schools. Her first album, Once in a Blue Moon, is a compilation of jazz standards. Her second CD, This Christmas...My Favorite Things, received a Grammy nomination in the “Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album” category. Her skilled voice is a treat for any audience.
I’ve Got Music and Other Short Stories: This show consists of several musical vignettes taking you on a delightful journey from one theme to another. Examples: How Do You Keep the Music Playing, Two Talented Brothers, Mad About You, Mr. Arlen Comes to Town, Déjà Vu…Music to Remember. Margaret weaves her way musically from 1970 back to the 1930s with narration of the times.
This Christmas…My Favorite Things: Based on her Grammy-nominated album. Full-symphonic arrangements are available.
