Enjoy familiar favorites and rare gems from the Great American songbook sung by Molly Mahoney with imaginative arrangements by pianist Grant Levin.
Mezzo-soprano Molly Mahoney has been singing with Big Bands since she was ten years old and has since opened for artists including Peter Marshall, The Ink Spots, The Mills Brothers, Marilyn King, Don Cherry and The Modernaires. Ms. Mahoney also appeared in concert with Vinnie Falcone, musical director and accompanist for the late Frank Sinatra. After touring nationally with a jazz ensemble, she continues her love of performance of the American Songbook with Bay Area cabaret shows as well as with her debut album “Two for the Road” which features familiar favorites and rare gems from The Great American Songbook with pianist Grant Levin. Her musical theater credits include lead roles as Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, Anne Collier in 1940s Radio Hour, Maisie in The Boyfriend and Honey Wonderly in the Annie Award-winning original musical The Black Bird Sings.
A stylistically diverse performer, Molly has been charming audiences and critics alike throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond with her “sublime singing”, “eloquence”, “memorable humor”, and “lovely” and “heartfelt” operatic portrayals. Molly has performed with many opera companies including West Bay Opera, West Edge Opera, Livermore Opera, and the San Francisco Opera Guild. Last year, Molly sang the title role in Iolanthe with Lamplighters Musical Theater, in a recorded performance which Opera News named one of the Top 12 Must Have Opera CD Releases of 2014. The glowing review highlighted the “simplicity and eloquence” of Molly’s performance as the beloved exiled fairy.
Molly holds a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
