Superstar! The Carpenters Tribute Show

February 10, 2023 / 7:30 pm

The Strand Theater proudly Presents A Special Valentine’s Weekend Event!

From Close to You to Top of the World, Helen Welch’s Velvety Voice Captures The Spirit of The Carpenters

When we first premiered this celebration of the music that moved a generation, we knew it would be popular. But with a blessing from Richard Carpenter himself, international singer and Grammy-nominee Helen Welch sold out every seat, and she positively brought the house down! Since then, it’s been an honor to bring this show back again and again! We even invited Helen to headline our exclusive Rodgers & Hammerstein Broadway Concert in 2021!

Now, we’re thrilled for Helen’s return with her fresh perspective on the music of The Carpenters in Superstar! Intertwining all of the songs you know and love with fascinating back stories, Superstar takes the audience on a nostalgic journey that honors the brother/sister pop duo’s brilliant career. Helen’s velvety alto voice and charming sense of humor are a perfect fit for her band’s spot-on arrangements of Close to You, We’ve Only Just Begun, Top of the World, and so many more! 

Helen Welch is an acclaimed vocalist, entertainer, producer and band-leader. Her unique talent for arranging songs to make them her own, coupled with her ability to intimately engage her audience, has quickly earned her a large and devoted following around the globe.   She has headlined with world-class organizations such as the BBC Big Band, Glenn Miller Europe, Opus One and others at some of the UK’s most prestigious venues. Additionally, she held starring roles in a variety of popular musicals including: Hello Dolly, Barnum, Carousel, 42nd Street, Calamity Jane, and Oliver Twist. setting of The Strand!

After a very successful run in the U.K., Helen relocated to the United States to guest star in the Broadway musical  Smokey Joe’s Cafe. Her immediate success landed her as a fronting vocalist for The Cleveland Orchestra, The Breckenridge Summer Orchestra, The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, The Grant Park Symphony Orchestra (Chicago), The Florida Symphony and the Columbus Jazz Orchestra.

It may be next year, but you won’t want to wait to reserve your tickets to this stellar event! There’s no better way to enjoy Valentine’s Weekend than this special evening that celebrates some of the greatest love songs from one of the most iconic music duos in history!
