Camille Metoyer Moten Jazz Quintet Tribute to Barbara Streisand at the Little Red Hen Theatre

The Camille Metoyer Moten Jazz Quintet will be holding a special performance of their tribute to the music of Barbara Streisand at the Little Red Hen theatre.

The performance will include some of Streisand’s greatest hits, such as “Evergreen”, “’The Way We Were”, “Don’t Rain on My Parade”, “Stoney End”, “Coloring Book”, “Papa Can You Hear Me”, “On A Clear Day” and others. Led by Camille’s vocals, the quintet works to create their own interpretations of these iconic songs, paying tribute to Streisand, but not imitating her. The Little Red Hen theatre is creating a unique setting for the performance, including adding non-traditional seating and a wine and beer bar for the event, turning the venue into an intimate jazz club for the evening.
