About the Performers:
Rebecca Covert currently performs in Pittsburgh as the featured house singer in the Off the Wall Theater’s cabaret series, which launched in February 2014. She and vocalist Anna Elder are the Indecent Divas, a cabaret act with sass and questionable class, and their first show debuted at Off the Wall in November 2014.
Rebecca’s first solo cabaret entitled “Lady in Flames” played at the University of Pittsburgh Studio Theater in July 2013. She was a featured soloist with the Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra (ELCO) and sings locally in a jazz & blues duo with guitarist Dan Burgun.
Rebecca also performed as Goody Plenty in “Amish Burlesque,” a parody musical featured at the Pittsburgh CLO Cabaret in Downtown Pittsburgh and, more recently, played Mama Rose in McKeesport Little Theater’s production of “Gypsy”.
Reni Monteverde, jazz pianist, gigs regularly at Riley’s Pour House in Carnegie and other live music venues around Pittsburgh. She studied for three years at the Fondazione Siena Jazz in Siena, Italy, under the instruction of Alessandro Giachero.
Her graduation thesis on Astrology and Jazz accompanied two concerts – in Siena, Italy and Carnegie – featuring the UDOO Smart Theremin. Since returning to the States in 2014, she teaches music to children through the Carnegie Arts Initiative and is currently a first year PhD candidate in Jazz Studies at the University of Pittsburgh.
