SINGER, composer and instrumentalist, Charlotte Sterland, will be taking a bow on Saturday night when her musical The Singing Ghost is performed in Highgate.
Charlotte, 22, who lives in Shenley, is known for playing in the progressive folk band Potato Potato and for her soulful solo sets.
Her most recent project has been The Singing Ghost, set in Montmartre, Paris, for which she is currently putting the finishing touches to the music she wrote as well as the orchestration.
It is being performed at 7.30pm at Jacksons Lane Theatre in Archway Road, Highgate, North London.
Born in North London, Charlotte grew up in Herts and attended Haberdashers’ Aske’s School for Girls where she gained a diploma in piano performance and theory entitling her to an ALCM at the age of 17.
