Mesdames et Monsieurs…… ATTENDEZ-VOUS! Christine Andreas returns to Vashon Center for the Arts to celebrate Edith Piaf…brought to life in the words of her friends, her triumphs and her music. An extraordinary portrait in song, performed in French and English …..”La Vie En Rose”, “Hymne A L’Amour”, “L’Accordeoniste”, “Milord”, et “Je Ne Regrette Rien’ (bien sur!)….
Haunted by Edith Piaf (1915-1963), Christine Andreas has for years presented iconic material associated with the little sparrow. Piaf—No Regrets is the illuminating and entertaining zenith of those forays. Andreas sings in impeccable French, as well as English, peppering the concert with well-selected quotes and Piaf’s own words in monologues by dramaturge Drew Harris. The resulting portrait is respectful, not reverent, admiring not worshipful.
She has sung in concert in Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Town Hall, the Kennedy Center Jazz Festival and the Caramoor Festival to name a few. Symphonic work includes the Boston Philharmonic with Ben Zander, the Tulsa Symphony with Peter Nero, the Detroit Symphony, the Richmond Symphony with Charles Strouse, the Palm Beach Pops, and The Silicon Valley Symphony. And now she’ll return to the Kay White Hall with her multi-talented husband, composer-arranger-musical director Martin Silvestri.
