And All That Jazz...
With musical influences ranging from Puccini through to Cole Porter, Cassandra's diverse career has spanned a breadth of genres which is constantly evolving.
Classically trained with over 20 years at the microphone, it is communicating the truth of the lyrics with a sensitivity to the melody that is at the core of her approach to singing.
See below for examples of a variety of different styles she offers.
Cassandra’s smooth vocals and Jazz repertoire enhance the warm ambience of wedding receptions and private functions and are the perfect addition to any event in one of Australia’s most spectacular wine regions. Whether you are after velvety background vocals during a cocktail reception or you require an evening of lively Jazz entertainment, she can provide a range of options from her duo through to a full quintet. She also has a range of chillout repertoire that suits a more relaxed setting, with popular contemporary tunes reworked into a Jazz style. Alternatively, with her classical background she can provide an Aria or light classical set list for the ceremony or a traditional setting.
