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.
