Carmen Mutschele, a relative newcomer to Williams Lake from Horsefly, is thrilled to be spreading her wings in new directions.
She is bringing her musical talent to Williams Lake and singing with a few new musical partners, Rudy Wassenaar on piano, Michael Fait on drums, and Richard Butters on saxophone.
“After moving to town and saying good-bye to Arts on the Fly, another door opened,” Mutschele says. “It’s been a fantasy of mine for a long time, ever since watching Michelle Pfeiffer in The fabulous Baker Boys sing Making Whoopee … So this one has become a reality, and years later I found myself a pianist, a drummer and a sax player — exciting times for a girl from Horsefly. Swing and Jazz it is!”
She says she is looking forward to their first show of timeless favourites, a musical journey from Nisa Simone to Norah Jones — Route 66 meets Mack the Knife at the Laughing Loon this Friday evening. The music starts at 7 p.m.
