About this concert:

In 2017, Patricia O’Callaghan sang the premiere theatrical run of One Last Night with Mata Hari, at the Isabel Bader Centre’s Studio Theatre. With book and lyrics by Craig Walker, and music by John Burge, both long-time Queen’s faculty members, this tour-de-force of a one-woman show’s initial run was supported by acting pianist, Gregory Oh. Since then, Queen’s University is very fortunate that Patricia has joined the DAN School Faculty. With Craig narrating the basic storyline, and John at the piano, Patricia will reprise highlights from the show. This concert coincides with the release of a CD recording that Patricia and John made of these songs for the Centredisc label last April at the IBCPA, as well as the publication of The Mata Hari Songbook by Red Leaf Vocalworks.
