From staff reports
The longest running Carpenters’ tribute in North America is beginning its 11-year-anniversary tour and will be at USC Beaufort Center for the Arts for two shows only on Saturday, April 2. Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with the surprisingly deep material of her unabashedly catchy pop music.
Singer and playwright Lisa Rock has been performing to sold-out crowds for years. She’s written more than 15 original concerts and cabarets and has compiled a moving tribute to the music and life of Carpenter and brings it to the stage with her si-piece backing band.
Dedicated to recreating the true sound of The Carpenters, Rock and her band showcase some of the most memorable songs of the 70s including We’ve Only Just Begun, Rainy Days and Mondays and Close to You.
