Margot Sergent: The Edith Piaf Legacy- French Classics from 1930s Parisian Cabaret
May 26, 2023
This Parisian Cabaret Revival features Margot Sergent, an acclaimed Parisian born cabaret singer, actress, and harpist who sang her way up from Parisian clubs to prestigious venues such as Olympia, almost mirroring the career path of Edith Piaf.
On the encouragement of mentors, she then attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music to nourish her passion for jazz, and was trained by renowned masters Ed Tomassi and Maggie Scott (former mentors of Diana Krall and Esperanza Spalding).
Making a splash in New York City, Margot Sergent will take you by storm with her infectious passion and dedication to French chansons and torch ballads in the unforgettable French legacy of Parisian Cabaret storytelling. Her voice enriched with emotion, Margot distills the essence of each lyric, weaving together a greater narrative. Margot is, without a doubt, the preeminent ambassador of Piaf’s legacy at this time.
This enchanting show is not one to be missed. Allow yourself to be transported in time to the sonic worlds of “La Vie en Rose,” “Non, je ne regrette rien,” “l’Hymne à l’Amour,” and other jewel songs that revolutionized the cabaret genre and made Piaf, Trenet, and Aznavour some of the greatest singer-storytellers of all time.
