HOT TICKET

Musical Messenger
Deborah Boily returns to Ovations with ‘Friends’

Renowned international vocalist Deborah Boily has a very specific philosophy when it comes to her craft.

“There are two kinds of singers,” she says on her website. “A singer who believes the words and music are the star where the singer is the
messenger, and a singer who believes the words and music are there merely as a vehicle allowing the singer to show off.”

Guess which kind of singer Deborah Boily is?

Known for her immaculate interpretations of French songs, Boily has chosen the first weekend in September for “An Intimate Evening with Debbie & Friends,” in which she plays messenger for some of her favorite tunes. Boily returns to West University’s Ovations stage for the first time in three years to deliver the two-night cabaret gig.

Accomplished local performers Terry Jones and Christine Dobbyn share vocal responsibilities with Boily, all of whom are accompanied by one of Houston’s most lauded and prolific pianists, Jerry Atwood.

September 1, 8 p.m., and September 2, 7 p.m. $20–$25. Ovations Nightclub, 2435 Times Blvd. To purchase tickets, representatives tell us to “Google ‘Purchase tickets at Deborah Boily.’” —Nancy Ford
