Pianist, vocalist and actress Louise Rose brings her brand of joy to Oak Bay’s Upstairs Lounge Friday. The Victoria performer is formally trained in piano, organ, voice, conducting and arranging. Some of her studies were with Oscar Peterson, Duke Ellington and Leonard Bernstein.
With a repertoire of jazz, blues, gospel and an extensive span of original music, Rose weaves a harmonious web of sounds.
Rose believes that music has the power to change our lives and that community is found through singing.
