The Sophia Perlman Quartet will make a stop in Fernie Tuesday evening as part of The Arts Station’s fall jazz concert series.

Sophia Perlman has been performing since the young age of four, and trained with the Canadian Children’s Opera Company, before going on to study jazz at Humber College. She’s a frequent guest with several of Toronto’s top musicians and ensembles, including the Toronto Jazz Orchestra, Richard Underhill, Ravi Naimpally, the Darcy Hepner Jazz Orchestra, and the Toronto Rhythm Initiative.

Now said to be one of the country’s most promising young vocalists, Perlman is celebrating the release of her newest album, ‘Alive at Musidem.’

Her passion for music extends beyond performing, Perlman also teaches workshops and private lessons in Toronto. In addition, she works with OPERAtion KIDS, introducing children to the magic of opera through school programs.

Perlman and her quartet will take the stage at The Arts Station at 8 p.m. on Tuesday. The concert is jazz pass inclusive, which covers all four jazz concerts in the series line-up at a cost of $60 for non-members, and $55 for Arts Station members. For admission to the Sophia Perlman show only, tickets can be purchased online and at The Arts Station, Freshies, and Carosella.
