Listening to Chanteuse Anna Bergman: An Exercise in Sophistication

Nov 21, 2014

Every so often, we like to check in with artists who've appeared on Crossover in the past to find out what they're up to. This week's returning guest is Anna Bergman, cabaret singer, concert artist, chanteuse.  

Listening to Ms. Bergman is an exercise in sophistication. From Francis Poulenc to Carole King, and everything in between, she performs opera, operetta and the so-called Great American Songbook, thrilling audiences worldwide with every bit of it.

Raised abroad as the daughter of an American diplomat, Anna is a crossover artist who sings in five languages in styles ranging from pop to classical. She has garnered critical acclaim for her solo concerts at elegant venues around the world.

Jill speaks with Anna, and plays works from her CD, Souvenir, and a couple of performances recorded live in concert.

Crossover, Saturday morning at 11:30 am on WRTI-FM, with an encore broadcast Friday evening at 7 pm on WRTI-HD2 and the All-Classical web stream at wrti.org.
