Award Winning New York singer Marieann Meringolo is making her, “Provincetown Debut," in a solo performance on Saturday, June 1st at 4PM in the showroom of the Pilgrim House.
Marieann, (who some critics say bears some physical and vocal resemblance to Barbra Streisand), is a Native New Yorker and has received critical acclaim; for her appearances at Feinstein's/54 Below, The Iridium Jazz Club and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Time Out New York magazine said of her, “ … If kd. lang’s DNA were to get whipped together with Barbra Streisand's in a genetics lab specializing in divas, the result might well be Marieann Meringolo.”
Meringolo’s latest CD, "Between Yesterday and Tomorrow : The Songs of Alan & Marilyn Bergman," is getting, "Rave" reviews. The New York Times says she, “…delivers songs about love lost and strength found…Sung in Grand Style.”
The Wall Street Journal said.: …“If you don’t do it brilliantly it isn’t worth doing at all…Ms. Meringolo’s powerhouse interpretation makes full use of the dramatic Bergman lyric."
Meringolo’s Solo show is part of this years Annual Cabaret Fest in Provincetown ( Apr. 29th th to May 1st at the Pilgrim House).
The THEME for the Cabaret Fest show this year is: “The Music of the 1960’s.” She will concentrate on 1960's classics by Dionne Warwick, Johnny Mathis, and (of course), the late, Michel LeGrand, ("The Windmills of Your Mind."
