Cathrine Summers presents Elton, Bowie, Beatles
March 27 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
Hot off the heels of a roaring success at FRINGE FESTIVAL 2020, Cathrine Summers is bringing one of her new sell-out shows to the Ellington for the first time! Elton/Bowie/Beatles is an homage to some of the greatest cultural and musical exports from Britain ever.
Cathrine, an ex-pat Brit herself (now proud WA citizen), is excited to bring these songs to life alongside a five-piece band featuring some of Perth’s premiere musicians. Expect songs like Starman, Let’s Dance, Hard Day’s Night, Crocodile Rock, and custom-made medleys! In between it all Cathrine weaves anecdotes and history of the artists and the time period, with a humour and charisma that has earned her the description of being “instantly familiar” from The Music Review.
If you missed it at FRINGE, or even just want a second go-around, make sure that you don’t miss this evening of fun and high-calibre entertainment!
“The ever-reliable Summers displays her lovely intonation and impeccable phrasing
with panache – and she looks dressed to thrill.” – Australian Stage
“We talk about Cathrine Summers off-air and both feel the same way about her talent! Apart from accurate pitch and beautifully controlled vibrato, she has the style and maturity to carry off the Great American Songbook compositions – just like her US idols.” – Ann Bolton & Ken Turnbull, Jazz Life Main FM 94.9 Victoria
