World renowned vocalist Janet Seidel is currently touring around the Central West and will be visiting the Orange Regional Conservatorium on Thursday 10th of September for a masterclass and concert.
Janet will be performing as a trio alongside fellow musicians Chuck Morgan and David Seidel, for a night of jazz, classical and even more modern pieces. The masterclass will also give students of the ORC and members of the public an opportunity to further their musical talents learning tips and tricks from one Australia’s more successful jazz artists.
The masterclass will run for an hour between 4pm and 5pm, before the night concert kicks off at 7:30pm.
Mrs Seidel said the trio has been very busy, having not long ago returned from a concert feature in Shanghai, where she was described as “the singer from Australia with the perfect voice” and received high praise for their performance.
With a wealth of experience worldwide, from recording studios (18 CDs released), live radio performances (including ABC, BBC, Japan), concert halls, theatres, jazz clubs and festivals, cabaret venues to country halls and private parties, Janet’s captivating voice along with superb guitar and bass, wins over new audiences time and again.
Reviewers have compared her favourably with iconic artists including Peggy Lee, Doris Day, Julie London and Blossom Dearie, accurately noting her influences. The trio uses the renowned Nat King Cole line up (piano/vocals, jazz guitar and double bass) and the extensive repertoire ranges from jazz standards, ballads, Latin, French Chanson, through to the more quirky depending on the setting.
Mrs Seidel said she is eager to play at the ORC, and always enjoys performing in regional areas.
“I am very excited about coming to Orange, and am looking forward to my visit,” she said.
“I really enjoyed my last visit, it’s a beautiful town.”
