Free Friday Concert: Cara Brindisi

Friday, July 20, 2012

 

Local musician Cara Brindisi will be today's performer at the Joyful Concert Series, sponsored by the New England Dream Center.

Brindisi, who has been singing since a young age in choirs and local theater productions, blends an acoustic pop and alternative sound with a beautiful, sultry voice. Her songs range from covers of classic hits like Neil Young’s “Old Man” and a unique take on “You are my Sunshine”, to originals like “Pour Me Wine” which is featured on her website.

She performs at venues across central Mass, including every Thursday night at Vincent’s in Worcester. The musician plays concerts at a wide array of restaurants and other venues and events in order to gain more experience and connect with more people. 

Brindisi, who graduated from the Berklee College of Music in 2010. While there, she took an interest in musical therapy. Thanks to her work as a licensed Musical Therapist, Brindisi claims, according to her bio, she is able to build “a repertoire of great variety” in her music through meeting a number of people of different backgrounds and styles. She still today works as a musical therapist by day and performs her music at night.

The Joyful Concert Series is a series of free concerts on Fridays this summer, and are designed to entertain and bring joy to neurologically challenged adults and the elderly. Recent performances have included local acts such as the Hip Swayers, Speaker for the Dead and Merrick Section. Doors will open at 11:30 am; the performance takes place from 12 pm to 1 pm at 5 Chestnut Street in Worcester.  There is no charge.
