Westborough – In this age of COVID-19, we are all missing live performances. But a group of longtime friends from Westborough recently had a special musical surprise, thanks to the creativity of Cara Brindisi, a performer from Worcester.
Brindisi performed a “singing telegram” on Sept. 15 as a treat for the group who had gathered at Lake Chauncy for a get together, at the request of one of the friends in the group, Melissa Houston.
As Brindisi said on her website, “All live performances are outdoors, distanced and masked” (when she is not actually performing). She offers virtual, in-person, or original songwriting. It is a fun and unique way to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. And for those friends or family members who live far away, Brindisi can do a video telegram.
Brindisi received her degree in Music Therapy from Berklee College of Music in 2010. Over the past decade she has become a popular musician in the central Mass. region, parlaying her experiences into songwriting and a fast-growing repertoire into performing with her acoustic guitar.
She has been voted Best Female Vocalist (2017) and Best Solo Acoustic Act (2014) by the Pulse Magazine’s Worcester Music Awards. Her first EP album, ‘Until Tomorrow’ is available on iTunes and Spotify.
