THE WEATHER may be cooling down, but the musical temperature is going to be sultry with an evening of jazz set for the Coolum Civic Centre on Saturday, June 22 with the ‘Take Me To Paris’ concert with the award-winning French-born singer Pauline Maudy. 

The highly acclaimed artist is going to be taking the audience on a journey to Paris and after a string of successful Queensland and international tours, Pauline is returning to Coolum with her intimate show which is about growing up in two places.  

Pauline brings to life her story of migration from Paris to the Sunshine Coast as a 13-year-old through a captivating repertoire of songs in French and English including some original compositions.  

“I can’t wait to bring this show to Coolum, seeing as the Sunshine Coast was the first place we landed when leaving Paris.  

“This area holds a special place in my heart, and I’m thrilled to share the rich, diverse sounds that have inspired me throughout my journey.” 

Take Me to Paris is about belonging, identity, and our search for an idealised version of heaven on earth. This entertaining, funny, and moving show skilfully weaves compelling storytelling, breathtaking music and a thought-provoking exploration of whether the grass really is greener on the other side.  

Audiences may be familiar with Pauline’s work from her songwriting and performances as the frontwoman of ensemble MZAZA with whom she has received three Queensland Music Awards and was nominated for Best Contemporary Album of the Year in the Australian Folk Music Awards.  

Pauline has a keen focus on spreading the beauty and intricacies of music while leveraging its power to connect us to one another 

For fans, Take Me to Paris presents a special opportunity to get to know Pauline in an intimate format, and for new audiences, it is a chance to meet one of Queensland’s favourite and most versatile singers who was recently named Artist of the Year (2023) at the Australian Folk Music Awards.  

One of the truly rare voices on the international scene, Pauline effortlessly channels the greats, transporting audiences from Parisian alleyways to New York jazz bars in a heartbeat.
