These Are The Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad


September 27 & 28, 7PM


YAC MainStage (Cabaret seating)



Produced by Nightswimming, These Are The Songs That I Sing When I’m Sad is an intimate and joyous performance for one singer and an audience gathered around her piano. It explores the songs people turn to when they’re sad, the songs that they play to soothe their blues or lift them up out of the depths.

Jane sings and tells stories about songs that play this role in her own life, and then invites the audience to share the songs that they sing (or play or listen to) when they’re sad. It’s a rare opportunity to hear a superb singer up close and personal as she delves into the link between deep emotions and the musical elements that make sad songs so addictive.

Created by Jane Miller & Brian Quirt. Performed by Jane Miller.
Directed & dramaturged by Brian Quirt. Produced by Gloria Mok. Designed by Rebecca Picherack.

 Playlists of sad songs generated by the audience in recent performances can be listened to via Nightswimming’s website and playlists from each of the Whitehorse performances will be available the following day.
