If you came to the Cape Symphony’s Holiday on the Cape in 2017, you had the pleasure of hearing powerhouse singer Siren Mayhew. The Martha’s Vineyard native performed John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas” with the chorus from Eddy Elementary School, which brought the house down, and later in the show, her rendition of “O Holy Night” had the audience spellbound. Siren was truly the star of the show, with our customers complimenting her “outstanding,” “powerful,” and “breathtaking” voice.
Good news – she’s back! Siren will join the Cape Symphony for our New Year’s Day Party on January 1. She’ll perform a variety of numbers – because Jung-Ho always plans a fun variety show for New Year’s Day – including a recent pop hit by a famous British diva, a gorgeous Broadway tune, and a dynamic collaboration with violinist Lindsay Deutsch, another of our New Year’s Day Party guests.
Siren began singing publicly at the age of five. In 2008, at 16, she won the first-ever Boston Pops High School Broadway Sing-Off, earning her a performance with the Pops on the Fourth of July on the Boston Esplanade. Keith Lockhart called Siren “instinctively and intuitively a great performer.”
In 2017, Siren entered the New England Song Writing Contest and received a Judge’s Choice Award for her 2016 single, “Mars” (she’ll also perform it on New Year’s Day!).
Siren has appeared at countless events around the Vineyard as well as on the mainland. Among Siren’s major performances are the Breakthrough Breast Cancer benefit held in Cadogan Hall, London, in 2010 and 2011; performances with the Cape Symphony; and concerts at First Night Chatham throughout the past decade. Last summer, Siren performed at the 2019 Beach Road festival on Martha's Vineyard alongside other artists including John Fogerty and Phil Lesh.
Siren collaborates with several local bands, in addition to performing her original music. She also fronts a cocktail hour ensemble that plays jazz classics, soul and Americana. Visit Siren's website to learn more.
We are delighted to have Siren as part of our special tenth New Year’s Day Party. Don’t miss out – your friends will be talking about her performance on January 2nd! Visit capesymphony.org or call 508.362.1111.
