From Paris to New Orlean celebration
Back due to popular demand, French/Australian chanteuse Emma Hamilton is bringing to life her new show “From Paris to New Orleans”. A high energy show featuring French classics songs of Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour and Charles Trenet, and exploring the French influence on American music from cajun music through to Jazz classics. The show features Emma’s virtuoso brother Thomas on piano and band leader, followed by some of Sydney’s hottest musicians and horn section. Emma sings with a passion and authenticity that comes with being a native speaker, and the musical interplay between Thomas on piano, Emma on accordion and the rest of the band is a joy to observe. This show will fill you with nostalgia, and enthrall your senses as you enjoy the vast array of material that is covered!
