UNMATCHED CARPENTERS TRIBUTE CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Pella, Iowa, November 26, 2012 – Singer Lisa Rock and her 6-piece band are bring you holiday classics – Carpenters style – with A Carpenters Christmas at Pella Opera House on December 14, 2012.
Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters’ beautiful, memorable love songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen number one hits. Now, singer and playwright Lisa Rock has arranged a 6-piece band, complete with back-up singers, and together they are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other. Rock’s amazing four octave range allows her to sing all the Carpenters hits in their original key, keeping the songs genuine and more recognizable for the audience. “When she hits the lower range of her marvelous voice,” notes Chicago critic Alan Bresloff, “if you close your eyes, you can see Karen Carpenter’s face.”
And Rock and her band are now expanding their Carpenters offerings with the very special A Carpenters Christmas show. This amazing holiday concert is a nod to the two Christmas albums the Carpenters made and captures the feel of the classic TV holiday variety shows of the 1970s. It showcases Rock’s amazing vocal talents and recreates the holiday experience the Carpenters made famous. Featuring “Merry Christmas Darling” and the jazzy “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town,” it’s a holiday concert that spreads joy and cheer to all.
A Carpenters Christmas comes to Pella Opera House on Friday, December 14 at 7 P.M. Tickets are $27, and can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 641.628.8625.
