Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with the surprisingly deep material of her abashedly catchy pop music. Singer and playwright Lisa Rock has compiled a moving tribute to the music and life of Carpenter, and brings it to the stage with her 6-piece backing band. Dedicated to re-creating the true sound of The Carpenters, Rock and her band showcase some of the most memorable songs of the 70's including We’ve Only Just Begun, Rainy Days and Mondays, and of course Close to You.
Our Lady of Fatima Children's Choir will join in for the song "Sing" at the end of Act I.
Our Lady of Fatima Children's Choir features approximately 50 students from grades 1st-6th. The choir rehearses once a week and provides music for two masses a week at Our Lady of Fatima Church in Biloxi. In addition to singing at mass the OLF choir provides music at the church and school's Halloween Carnival and Spring Festival and carols at nursing homes at Christmas time. Recently the choir was featured by singing with the world renowned 16 year old pianist and composer, Ethan Bortnick on his national tour stop in Biloxi and at the Beau Rivage for the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center's WINGS Dreams production.
