View web site for Claudia Hommel

Paris-born and Chicago-based, Claudia Hommel specializes in French chanson, American standards, 19th to mid-20th century art songs and theatre music. Her clear and beautiful voice, ranging from lyrical to gutsy, adds to her considerable appeal.

Neil Tesser for the Chicago Reader calls her "a latter-day female counterpart to Maurice Chevalier. She brings a terrific trio--pianist, bassist, and accordionist -- and she offers an unspoken guarantee that you'll think you paid for the evening in euros.”

John S. Wilson of the New York Times says “Claudia Hommel, a singer and actress who performs in both theater and cabaret, brings a sense of theater with her when she goes into cabaret...her voice can be strong and soaring, and she uses it to excellent dramatic effect in her lusty Spanish and French songs.”

North Shore Magazine: “Hommel was so spectacular, so commanding a presence… she has a smooth, rich voice. She is at once sexy and sophisticated, stunning in an Audrey Hepburn sort of way.”

When touring to Paris, she has been known to take fans and friends along for a wonderful moveable feast of music and Paris her way. You can come, too. Check her web calendar for the next trip.

Claudia is a founding member of Chicago Cabaret Professionals -- will take you to 90 minutes of song excerpts!
