Sharon has been in Toronto’s vibrant music scene as a saxophonist, flautist and singer/songwriter for many years. A chance meeting with Dragan Petrovic, a world class pianist and composer, in 2005 led to a musical collaboration that could be described as “two worlds collide”. Her collection of original tunes, has a distinct influence from Dragan’s performance and arrangements. Sharon takes the stage with her musical friends and will share her unique style of story telling. She is recognized for her gentle, warm voice and blending elements of folk, jazz, blues and pop. Her songs resonate with listeners in a very personal way, drawing on life experience, observations and messages of hope. And for some fun, the evening will bring some special surprise elements with the superb soloing talents of the band members.
