Risa Finkel ~ Finding My Voice
2 Beverage Minimum
Risa Finkel has performed for sell out audiences in some of Long Island and New York's most unique venues. (A turn of the century steel foundry, a marina boatyard and the Heckscher Art Museum.) Risa first "found" her voice in the roles of opera, classical repertoire and musical comedy. The most joyous expression of that voice, however, has been in the collaborative world of cabaret. Along with her award winning team, Musical Director, Paul Greenwood, and Director, Scott Barnes, she is debuting her latest show at New York City's renowned Cabaret venue, the Metropolitan Room. "Finding My Voice" promises to be an open-hearted voyage through the American songbook. This uniquely crafted show highlights the songs of the greatest American songwriters of the past several decades. As always, the show will be infused with Risa's funny and insightful observances about family, social consciousness, and -- since it is cabaret after all, LOVE!
