Waring School Presents: An Evening of Song
with critically acclaimed alumnae:
"...She will knock your socks off, should you be wearing any this close to the beach." - Boston Phoenix
"With the rich voice of a torch singer ...her lyrics express the longings of personal connection" -The Voice
Waring will be hosting a concert open to the public with two of our very talented alumni musicians. This fun evening will celebrate both music and our community, plus, all proceeds will go towards Waring's mission to create life long learners.
Miranda Russell (’90) is considered by many to be a moving vocalist and nuanced performer, and her concerts center on interpretations of the music of the great songwriters of our day. After attending Waring School, she was an acting major at Emerson College under Kristin Linklater (of Freeing the Natural Voice) and later toured Europe as an actor/singer/dancer with a small hardworking theater company. She studied directing at Harvard University (Extension School) with David Wheeler. She was a music therapy and voice performance double major at Loyola University New Orleans College of Music where she trained in classical voice. Miranda's live shows steal a little from every facet of the living and learning that a performer undergoes during the process of becoming just that: a performer.
Charlee Bianchini (’05) has been a professional musician for over six years. While attending the Waring School, Charlee trained classically with renowned guitarist, Anthony Weller, and took voice lessons with Kristina Martin. She continued studying while at Skidmore College, and after a year of travel and a masters degree in conflict transformation, she returned to the North Shore to perform and teach music. She plays a variety of music in and around New England, focusing on rock, folk, R&B, and blues, and writes much of the music she plays.
