Karen Oberlin
Oberlin brings back her show, Like Love: The Popular Songs of Andre Previn, after 13 years to honor the song legacy of this important artist. This is a varied collection of extraordinary songs -- some beloved, some virtually unknown, by a master composer who defies category. Lyricists Johnny Mercer, Alan Jay Lerner, the Bergmans, Comden and Green and Dory Langdon (Previn) joined Andre Previn to create the stuff of a show rich with complex emotions, substance, and delicious wit.

“'Like Love' is unique, not only because of the intriguing lineup of Previn tunes (but) Oberlin brings each to life with its own story. Her voice is as communicative as the lyrics.” — Elizabeth Ahlfors, Cabaret Scenes


KAREN OBERLIN has been hailed as one of premier interpreters of the Great American Songbook by both the New York Times and London's Classical Source. The Times has said of Oberlin; "Beyond having a pretty voice, poise and interpretive insight, she is a thorough researcher," along with saying she has "musical intelligence." She is a recipient of the New York Nightlife Award for Jazz Vocalist of the Year, along with the Mabel Mercer Foundation's Donald F. Smith Award, multiple MAC Awards, a Bistro Award, a Broadway World Award and an Honorary Doctorate in Music for her performance work. In New York she has had major engagements at the Algonquin's Oak Room, Feinstein's/54 Below, the Café Carlyle and Birdland, along with performances at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Town Hall, Merkin Hall and Caramoor. Ms. Oberlin performs at concert halls and clubs across the country and in annual European engagements, and has four recordings on the Miranda Music label, the last of which (a duo album with guitarist Sean Harkness) has been a favorite of Jonathan Schwartz on his legendary radio show. Ms. Oberlin has also been a musical guest on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz radio show on NPR. www.karenoberlin.com
