Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor will present a concert-theater performance of “Joplin’s Pearl featuring Amber Ferrari” on Saturday, March 21, at 8 p.m.

The show was formed by coincidence in 2005 during Ellen Michelmore’s production of “Woodstockmania” at Theatre Three in Port Jefferson. As her vocal coach and close friend, Michelmore approached lead singer Amber Ferrari to cover the music of Janis Joplin, and, following terrific acclaim, the band was born.

Part concert experience, part dramatic theater production, “Joplin’s Pearl” takes the music of Janis Joplin to an entirely new level, with a nine-piece backing band, authentic attire, and enough heart and soul to bring us all back to the Summer of Love.

Known for her vocal range, songwriting, and theatrical presence, Ferrari has performed alongside such notables as Richie Cannata, Randy Jackson, and Bobby Rondinelli. Her tribute performances of music by Janis Joplin, Madonna, and Pat Benatar are showcased in three ongoing shows, “Joplin’s Pearl,” “Material Girl” and “Benatar.”

“Joplin’s Pearl” is presented in conjunction with Hamptons Arts Network’s 2020 “Thaw Fest.” Tickets are $30 in advance ($40 day of the show) at or 631-725-9500.
