STRATFORD - The Stratford Library will conclude its series of free, holiday Sunday concerts with "A Broadway Christmas with Claire Kaiser" at 2 p.m. Dec. 19.
The concert is free and open to the public, library officials said in a statement.
Stratford vocalist and actress Claire Kaiser, shown is currently a junior at Emerson College in Boston where she is pursuing her bachelor's degree in theater studies, the statement said.
"She was most recently seen as Nettie in Emerson's Musical Theatre Society's production of Carousel and originated the role of Marianne in an original musical, Zazou, in 2009 which was written and composed by fellow Emerson student Noel Carey," the statement said.
Before moving to Boston, Kaiser had the opportunity to perform locally at The Klein Memorial Auditorium, Playhouse of the Green and The Downtown Cabaret Theater, the statement said.
In 2007 she received the Square One Theatre's Subscribers Award for Outstanding Featured Actress in 'Doubt'. She was also featured in Square One's musical, 'The Grass Harp.'
Kaiser is currently a top ten finalist for Best Vocal Performer Emerson's Evvy Awards, the statement said.
A “mezzo-soprano with belt,” she will perform holiday music with a Broadway beat for the Stratford Library concert, the statement said.
Traditional holiday favorites will be blended with song selections from such Broadway musicals as Wicked, Meet Me In St. Louis, Carousel, Guys and Dolls, Ragtime and The Drowsy Chaperon.
