peter foret's parlour songs music concerts for seniors
Performing over 250 shows a year since 2010, Peter Forêt is Eastern Ontario’s premier seniors’ entertainer. His 60 minute show features period costumes, skilled guitar playing, soulful singing, dry humour and an engaging personality.
Peter’s concert show is unlike any entertainer in the region. Spanning 100 years of popular music, his repertoire is diverse in style and substance. “I haven’t heard those songs in years!” and “I knew the words to every song!” are typical comments received after a show.
And there are no computer-generated music tracks, no laptops, no tablets. Just real, live music, the way your residents remember it.
Peter Forêt is Ottawa/Gatineau’s busiest musician and entertainer. Besides performing over 200 seniors’ shows each year, he’s one of the region’s top free-lance guitarists. Peter regularly plays guitar in the pit orchestra for the Orpheus Musical Theatre Society and has performed at corporate events, restaurants and nightclubs as a jazz, country and rock guitarist and singer for dozens of local artists and bands.
He’s played guitar for internationally known artists such as Martha Reeves [of “Dancing in the Street” fame], Alanis Morrissette, comedian Bob Newhart and impressionist Rich Little. In 2010 Peter performed for Canadian and international troops in Kandahar and Kabul [Afghanistan] and Dubai [United Arab Emirates] as part of the Canadian Forces Show Tour.
