Karen Oberlin in Secret Love: A Tribute to Doris Day
This very special event will celebrate the 90th birthday of the iconic star. The song list will include beloved favorites such as "Que Sera, Sera", "Sentimental Journey," the title song, "Secret Love," and also includes many rare, poignant songs that show the many sides of this intriguing icon. In Secret Love, Karen Oberlin delves deeply into the life and music of this intriguing and important cultural phenomenon -- from having a baby as a teenager, touring with big bands, recording sensational songs, surviving tumultuous marriages and becoming the highest paid woman in Hollywood history.

The New York Times called Karen Oberlin's hit tribute to the great Doris Day "widely admired" and called her "a jazzier inheritor of Doris Day's impeccable pop style." Oberlin, the recipient of the 2011 New York Nightlife Award for Jazz Vocalist of the Year, has often been compared to Ms. Day in her work as a vocalist, and she couldn't be happier. "Doris Day is one of our greatest artists, and although she is truly American, like apple pie and jazz, she reaches the hearts and minds of people all over the world," says Oberlin.

Karen Oberlin has been hailed by the New York Times as one of the premier interpreters of the Great American Songbook and has headlined at The Oak Room at the Algonquin, Feisntein's at the Regency, the Café Carlyle, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Iridium Jazz Club, Merkin Hall, The Town Hall, among many others, and has toured worldwide. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including 2013's most prestigious cabaret award, the Mabel Mercer Foundation's Donald F. Smith Award and an Honorary Doctorate in Music for her performance work. She is a recording artist with four CD's, including "Secret Love: The Music of Doris Day.”

“Ms. Oberlin’s beautifully shaped reading in the classic pop tradition was one that Ms. Day in her prime might well have envied.” - Stephen Holden, THE NEW YORK TIMES

“I’m so enjoying your CD! You have a beautiful sound and tone so I am very flattered that you have enjoyed my work. You brought me to tears.”- DORIS DAY
