Patricia Racette: Patricia Sings


Patricia Racette, one of the premier American sopranos of her generation, makes her long-awaited HTP Mainstage debut with an evening of songs by French chanteuse Edith Piaf, accompanied by pianist Craig Terry. Piaf’s songs of love, loss, and sorrow made her a national icon of France and one of the country’s most widely known and loved artists.

In Racette’s own words, “I find myself continually coming back to the songs of Piaf … because of the raw, visceral nature of her delivery, the kind of drive that melded its way into all aspects of my own artistic identity over the years. Trying to emulate Piaf is not the goal — that has been done. This evening is my chance to put my voice on songs that create windows into the soul of her tragic and triumphant life.”
