Yesterday Once More
The Sound of Karen Carpenter

Karen Carpenter tribute w/ vocalist + piano

This is a celebration of those songs and ‘that’ sound told via the velvet voice of singer/actress Joanne O’Brien.

Through a cavalcade of iconic classics, Joanne illuminates the musical diversity, pop culture, and political climate of that time in history when the world first fell in love with the magical sound of Karen and Richard Carpenter.
