Charlotte grew up in Burnaby, and graduated from North Delta High School. She is a graduate of UBC, and taught French and Music at New Westminster High School. This concert will appeal to the whole family and will have everybody moving to the rhythms of “La Bamba”, “Listen to the Water” and “Dicky Dinosaur”.
