I perform on a regular basis in San Diego in addition to my concerts, convention and corporate functions, weddings and private parties.

The venues are usually in hotels and restaurants. Everyone is invited. Many times my musician friends show up and we have magical times showing off our musical talents to the delight of our fans.

If you are in San Diego, please stop in and enjoy a fun evening of great music.

Karen Giorgio in "Trains & Boats & Planes, Oh My!
Confessions of a globe-trotting songstress

Performing all over the world gives Karen a lot of anecdotes to pull from, to which she adds her wit & charm plus songs that will have you from the first note. Joining her will be special guest Vinny Di Figlia along with Musical Director Shelly Markham.

About The Cast

Born in New York, Karen Giorgio began her musical career at age seven learning piano and training as an opera singer. By her tenth birthday, the lure of Broadway brought her into the limelight with the lead role as Francie in “A Tree Grows In Brooklyn” at summer stock and Off-Broadway productions.

Moving to California, she starred as Julie in “Carousel” at Hollywood High School and soloed with the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl.

After raising two children she began her globe-trotting performing on the finest cruise ships and hotels throughout the world. Karen has delighted audiences in Scandinavia, Europe, Japan, Mariana Islands, the Caribbean, Bermuda, Canada and America.

Karen’s main goal and “bandwagon” is to help keep live music alive in this era of electronic synthesis. Ask Karen what is a cabaret artist and she will likely respond, “A saloon singer, a live entertainer in an intimate setting, a storyteller who happens to speak in melody. The cabaret artist opens up her soul to audiences as she interprets her songs.” – Now that’s live music alive.
