"With a Song in My Heart"
The Acorn is proud to present the star of shows such as "Phantom of the Opera", Maria Kesselman, in her new show.
Maria Kesselman - celebrated West End leading lady, outstanding international concert performer and recording artist, is joined by accompanist James Church in her stunning new show for 2017 entitled "With A Song in My Heart", a wonderful cavalcade of songs, anecdotes and marvellous memories spanning the musical stage, cabaret and even a touch of opera.
It is a magical, musical tour-de-force; an emotional roller coaster ride through the Great American Song Book of Gershwin, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Sondheim, Bernstein and many more, with stops along the way to explore the musical magnificence of Lloyd Webber, Jacques Brel, Franz Lehar, etc.
One of the most celebrated performers of the musical stage, Maria has starred in many leading roles in London’s West End and throughout the world, including Christine in The Phantom of the Opera opposite Michael Crawford, Maria in West Side Story, Eliza in My Fair Lady, Jenny Lind in Barnum and Maria in The Sound of Music.
She has performed solo concerts at the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Barbican and is well-known to British radio audiences through her numerous appearances on BBC Radio 2's "Friday Night is Music Night".
“….a truly golden voice with warmth radiating from every note.” The Guardian
