Her Voice: "Ingrid has an instrument with a rich, round, warm, honeyed color, and is very much at home in a variety of styles", says world renowned director and conductor Clyde Mitchell, who has worked with artists such as Michael Buble, Mel Torme and David Foster. Ingrid is widely admired for her soulful and soothing interpretations of popular adult contemporary favorites as well as her dynamic and playful renditions of show tunes and light jazz classics. Her sound has the warmth of Diana Krall, the purity of Eva Cassidy and tenderness of Sarah McLachlan.
Her Appearances: Ingrid has most recently enchanted audiences in Symphony Pops engagements with Lions Gate Sinfonia (North Vancouver, 2013, 2014) the Thompson Valley Orchestra (British Columbia, 2015), and has appeared as soloist with Canadian Choral icon Larry Nickel, the 2010 Olympics Cariboo Stage, pianist JD Daniels (Paul Anka, Donnie Osmond, Beyonce), Michael Creber (k.d. Lange, Raffi), as well as with various choirs, jazz combos, orchestras and big bands throughout British Columbia.
Her Concerts: Ingrid's passion lies in masterfully connecting with her audiences through her vibrant stage shows. Performing with either a small combo or a full orchestra, her show is carefully planned so it's seamless in presentation whether she is singing timeless favorites like Danny Boy, Besame Mucho (Spanish), Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man (Showboat), and Summertime or heartfelt ballads like On My Own (Les Misérables), La Vie en Rose (French), and Songbird (Eva Cassidy).
Ingrid has built her show based on Nashville's renowned Live Music producer, Tom Jackson (Taylor Swift). His method is an industry proven technique for engaging audiences naturally night after night. Ingrid is a master at connecting with her listeners.
Her Accolades: Ingrid Mapson brings crowds to their feet with her "amazingly versatile voice that seems to effortlessly span genres" and her "rare ability to sincerely connect to her audience" (Miles Black, Juno Award winning producer/ multi instrumentalist/composer.)
