singer, actor, coach, producer
One of America's favorite singers of French song, Claudia Hommel brings her cabaret magic to concert halls, clubs and schools. From the Art Institute of Chicago to the Musée de Montmartre in Paris, from Ravinia to Sarasota, she transports her audience to "Paris" with a song. The bonus is to join her in Paris for her Cabaret Intourludes to France.
Dorothy Andries of Pioneer Press says:
"For a few hours, we were in Paris, transported by a marvelous cabaret show at the Ravinia Festival starring the remarkable singer Claudia Hommel. An excellent actress, she can set a mood with a turn of her head or the look in her eyes."
"Claudia has a great voice, is full of energy and engages the audience - and I even learned something. Can't beat that" - J. Guest
Neil Tesser for the Chicago Reader—
“Claudia Hommel plays the role of chanteuse-boulevardiere to the hilt. You'll think you paid for the evening in euros.”
