We are the Queen City Sisters
This a cappella women’s trio dazzles audiences with their tight harmony arrangements of songs from the 1930’s through the 1950’s. The group was formed in 2013 based on the desire to bring a touch of old Hollywood glamour to Cincinnati area audiences. Classic songs by Rosemary Clooney, Doris Day, the Andrew Sisters, and more round out an entertaining song list.
The Queen City Sisters have been inspired by the way this music resonates with audiences of all ages. Adults remember the songs from their youth and from their parents and grandparents. Children, full of joy, dance as they hear these songs for the first time.
With vintage style and that touch of class and sass, the Queen City Sisters have performed in a wide range of venues from small rooms to open air concerts including Cincinnati Dinner Train, 2015 Baseball All Star Game, Macy’s Downtown Dazzle, Cincinnati’s historic Museum Center, Christkindlmarkt, FOX19, Westwood First Presbyterian concert series, The Fairfield Arts Center, The Artswave’s Rosemary Clooney mural dedication, and for numerous clubs and civic groups.
