Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music. The Carpenters' beautiful, memorable love songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen number one hits. Close to You: The Music of The Carpenters brings these classics back to the stage with spot-on renditions of these familiar hits. Lead vocalist, Lisa Rock, and her 6-piece band are dedicated to creating a Carpenters experience like no other.
Karen and Richard Carpenter often kept things simple on stage, performing as just a duo. But to create the full, rich sound we all love on their albums, they had several additional musicians join in, making lush arrangements and creating unforgettable music. Rock and her band bring you that same sound, with their production of Close to You: The Music of the Carpenters
