In Concert - Piaf and more ... - Joëlle Rabu and Nico Rhodes

Joëlle Rabu’s "In Concert – Piaf and more" promises an intimate evening of musicality and theatricality. Featuring songs performed in English, French and Spanish, Rabu presents a special tribute to a cornucopia of works from the torch song era.

Piaf fans won't be disappointed; as one critic summed it up so well: "Rabu is Edith Piaf, Bette Midler and Carole Burnett all rolled into one extraordinary performer. Her passion-filled voice is spine-tingling and her stage presence electric."

What makes this performance even more entertaining and unique is the connection she has with her accompanist - pianist, Nico Rhodes. Nico is Joelle's 24-year-old son who is making his own headlines on both the western Canadian jazz and musical theatre scenes. An exceptionally talented music director, arranger and musician, Nico's star is definitely on the rise.

Rabu has toured throughout 5 continents with both her concerts of original songs and her stage play "Tonight... Piaf". A two-time Jessie Award winner, Juno nominee, Excellence in the Arts award winner, and Touring Artist of the Year recipient, Rabu is well-known for her ability to delve into several musical styles. Her interpretation of classic European cabaret-style tunes, jazz melodies, and heart wrenching torch songs has left audiences spellbound.
