A House Concert with Musical Storyteller, Kaleo
Sunday, August 28th 2:00pm - 3:30pm
“Kaleo’s music and stories will whisk you off to a world of peace and relaxation that you will never want to escape from. It always brings me back to what really matters in life, love and relationships.” Kaleo has fused her rich and warm voice with the deeply soothing and relaxing vibrations of her small harp to share her intoxicating gift for storytelling. Covering a range of song styles, and sometimes sharing her storiess through Hula, the ancient storytelling ; Kaleo escorts the listener on a musical odyssey with Messages from the Heart, while she engages the audience to be an active part of the whole experience.
Kaleo Wheeler has been singing for as long as she can remember. She began her formal training in her early teens after two doctors told her mother that she had an unusually large opening in her throat, something they said was characteristic of exceptional singers. Her vocal studies continued into adulthood, eventually leading her to become a voice specialist and teacher herself.
Kaleo began performing as a female vocalist in her teens, first singing popular songs. She later studied classical music and opera, completing her college training at the Academy of Dramatic Art, where she moved into musical theatre. After graduation, she lived in New York City, singing and appearing professionally in cabaret and nightclubs, including Catch a Rising Star and the Improv. She was the opening act on a college circuit, working with the current up and coming comics who included Jerry Seinfeld. She performed in musical theatre, including the title role in a Florida production of “Mame.” She recorded demos for several composers; and in 1992 was the vocalist on Jack Conrad’s recording, "Mother Earth Dance” In 2007, she completed her first solo CD, “Ulana, The Way of the Heart”.
She has been a member of the national organization, The Positive Music Association since 2207. Her music genre is Positive Music, and and her music repertoire includes light jazz, standards from the 40’s through the 70’s, show tunes and world music, and Celtic songs. In 2001, Kaleo began studying harp and now sometimes accompanies her rich, warm and powerful voice with a small harp, as well as with instrumental tracks. She has been a Certified Music Practitioner through the Music For Healing and Transition Program (MHTP), sharing live therapeutic music through her voice and music for the sick in hospitals, nursing homes and with those in hospice in the final stages of transition since 2005.
Kaleo is also a performing artist with the GINA for Missing Persons Foundation in 2007. Many of her concerts are benefit concerts—most often as a GINA artist focusing on a local missing person. She also sometimes dedicates a concert to a local community issue as in helping to raise awareness and funding for a local women's shelter.
Whether it is in the small intimate setting of a private party. a living room house concert in person or online, or a larger event with hundreds of people, Kaleo is fully present in the world of the song she is sharing. She draws the audience in to open their hearts, giving them a "time out" from all the stresses and concerns in today's world through listening to stories and music that are positive, uplifting, inspiring and heartfelt. The audience returns home feeling more relaxed and at peace within themselves.
Don’t miss a delightful evening and opportunity to experience this talented singer and storyteller in a live setting, creating a dynamic and enriching experience for each person there.
