Sarah's covers with the Art of Time

Sarah's songbook concert with the Art of Time Ensemble have now concluded.  The set list we posted here was fairly accurate with a few notable changes.  Covers of PJ Harvey and Cole Porter that where mentioned in early event promotions where dropped.  They were replaced with a new arrangement of Sarah's "Sound of Water" and a revisit to her Art of Time cover of Martin Tielli's "I'll Never Tear You Apart".  Another additional song added was a cover of "Smile" that was composed by Charlie Chaplin in 1934 and first sang by Nat King Cole in 1954.  This song was not listed performance program.  This was the review from the first of the two nights.

Sarah performance of Ne Me Quitte Pas by Jacques Brel has been tweeted as being divine.  It marks the second time in recent history Sarah has sang in French and the first time to a live audience.

The show was archived on a single video camera at the rear of the theater. It has been unofficially been confirmed that CBC was recording for a Concert on Demand special.  We will let you know when that recording becomes available.

It does not appear that Sarah is listed in any of next season's Art of Time concerts that where just announced.  The program did contain another event that features Sarah which I will post details about in separate post following this one.
