Whether intimate theatre, nightclub, private soirées or large-ensemble musical evenings, Claudia partners with some of Chicago's finest singers, pianists, accordionists, jazz combos and chamber ensembles to bring you a magical evening of theatre and song.


  • Vocal Canvas: made-to-order illustrated concerts bring together songs and projected images in live performance. "Hear the painting. See the song."
  • Picasso and Matisse Go to the Music Hall: pictures at an exhibition. A Vocal Canvas concert, our repertoire sings the art of 19th and 20th century France.
  • Women of Paris: an homage to the 20th century singers, from Yvette Guilbert and Josephine Baker to Edith Piaf, who brought Paris to the world with their songs.
  • Paris in the Jazz Age: the musical revue celebrates the history of jazz in Paris from cakewalk to swing, with Cole Porter and Maurice Chevalier joining in.
  • Romance Language: French songs for lovers. A great "date-night" concert whether it's called April in Paris, Paris in the Spring, Autumn in Paris, or Romance Language.
  • French Impressions: a salon concert. A rendez-vous for soprano and pianist draws on art songs of Fauré, Chabrier, Satie, Ibert, Christopher Berg's homage to Poulenc, and beyond.
  • Souvenirs of Paris, 1950: the cabaret-play features the character Marcelle as she recounts her life with songs made famous by Edith Piaf, Juliette Gréco and Yves Montand and songs celebrating the Paree of American composers Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Vernon Duke.
  • That's What Makes Paris, Paree: a romp for young audiences. Get ready to sing and dance!
  • A Workingperson's Cabaret: we tip our hat to Studs Terkel, whose interviews with workers opened our eyes to the nature of work and workers, on the job and off. (Studs even tipped his hat to Claudia when he interviewed her at WFMT radio. He waxed nostalgic about Paris and its songs.)


  • The Jazz Fauré Project: French Impressionism meets American Jazz. A sure delight for pop, chamber music and jazz aficionados. Hear what happens when the 19th century mélodies of Gabriel Fauré start to "swing".
  • The Travel Abroad Trio with singers Sean Harris and Elizabeth Doyle takes advantage of the trio's flair for languages and musical genres.
  • Moulin Rouge Live! with Andrea de la Torre's can-can dancers is a great crowd pleaser. From wedding to corporate event, wherever there's a dance floor we are ready to kick up our heels, offer a flash and a wiggle as seen here.
  • Espresso: a tasty blend of solo voices, four of Chicago's favorite cabaret singers bring their vast repertoires together to enchant new audiences with the best of the American and European songbooks.
