BIOGRAPHY

Called a "tour de force of cabaret, opera, and jazz" by the Chicago Tribune, Hilary Ann Feldman has appeared across the country, celebrating music of the Great American Songbook past and present, while paying tribute to some of entertainment's most beloved icons.

 

Based in Chicago, she is a familiar face there, with a reputation for clever storytelling through song, unique subject matter, and an exquisite, versatile singing voice.  Locally, she has performed in theatres and clubs, including: Victory Gardens, Davenport’s Cabaret, Drury Lane Theatre, Park West Theatre, Claudia Cassidy Theatre, Skokie Theatre, Moraine Valley Performing Arts Center, Metropolis Performing Arts Center.  Nationally, she has performed at The Acorn Theatre in Three Oaks, MI; Sharon Lynn Wilson Center for the Arts in Brookfield, WI; M Bar Supper Club in Los Angeles, CA; and the Metropolitan Room, in NYC; and she also has taken her act abroad to the Jermyn Street Theatre in London, England.

 

Named one of the top 5 female musicians in Chicago by CBS 2 Chicago, Hilary is known not only for her unique take on traditional cabaret fare, but also for pushing the boundaries of what that fare can be.

 

 

The remarkable success of her tribute to the beloved Audrey Hepburn proved that music could be used to pay tribute to a non-musical icon.  

 

"... a classy musical tribute to Audrey Hepburn.  While offering a cabaret show based on a performer known more as an actress than singer might be tricky, Feldman makes it all fly... a lovely vocalist... the right balance of musicality, story, and heart."  ~ Cabaret Scenes Magazine

 

Hilary followed up that triumph with her most recent hit, a tribute to funny woman Carol Burnett, which has been playing to sold out houses since it opened in May 2015 and prompted a couple of phone calls from Carol Burnett herself!

"I absolutely loved the show!  I've told a few people this in my life, and now I'm telling you: You are the whole package!"

  ~ Carol Burnett, TV Legend & Broadway Star

 

Expertly weaving together her wealth of knowledge on her chosen subject with just the right music to tell the story, Hilary creates clever and compelling performances that surprise and delight audiences.  


Hilary’s debut CD, Taking Flight,  was named "Cabaret/Folk CD of the Year" by NY Cabaret Hotline.   Available here.
