When Mitzi Albert-Schwarz was born, recounts her mother, the obstetrician proclaimed "What a pair of lungs!", and we knew then that Mitzi burned with the fire and passion of song and performance. She began performing professionally at the age of twelve, joining the Santa Monica Playhouse as a member of their critically acclaimed Young Professionals Workshop. She went on to perform in cabaret and theater productions throughout Southern California: The Oak Room, Grappa Cucina Supper Club, Cafe Ibiza, The Gardenia Supper Club. Theatrically, Mitzi has performed in Gypsy, The Three Sisters, Bob Kaufman Live – Poetry and Other Writings, Murder by Night, Taxpayer, Taxpayer: An Original Musical Spoof, and Brownstone, among others. Mitzi has performed extensively in concert and over the years has sung for the City of Hope, the Holy Spirit Retreat Center's Summer Concert Series, The Pediatric AIDS Foundation, The San Fernando Valley Cultural Center's Concerts in the Park, B'nai Brith, Marina Del Rey Outdoor Concert Series, El Segundo Library Concert Series, The Los Angeles Zoo, The Big Bear Lake Summer Wine Walk, to name but a few of the venues she's played. Moreover, she is a Cantorial Soloist, and as such, not only has a strong background in Jewish liturgy, but also knows how to put over the Jewish, Yiddish and Ladino hits with flair and pizzaz.
Additionally, for the past 18 years, Mitzi has worked with, and now leads, her own casual band, called, appropriately, Mitzi's Music. She and her talented musicians have provided the music for countless wedding receptions, corporate events, retirement parties, promotion parties, Christmas parties, New Year's Eve bashes - you name it, they've played it! This is a versatile band, the core players consisting of keyboards, bass, drums, guitar, sax, and, of course, Mitzi heading up the band, with an emphasis on swing, oldies Rock n' Roll, pop and western swing.
Whether you're wanting an intimate cabaret performance, an electric one-woman concert, or music for your party that gets your guests out of their chairs and onto the dance floor, Mitzi Albert-Schwarz is the performer for you!

Thanksgiving Celebration in Newport Beach, CA on 11/23/2011
"Great group to work with! I enjoyed doing business with Mitzi from start to finish. Very pleasant and cheerful individual who was professional and organized. Made follow up phone calls, emails, etc. Helps to take away any question marks during the planning process. The group itself had a wonderful sound and a good stage presence which made for great entertainment. I must also note that this group was self sufficient and easy to work with. That was refreshing as some performers come in with a "diva" mind set. Thanks for a great show Western Blvd!!!"

Fundraiser in Palos Verdes Estates, CA on 02/23/2013
"What a beautiful voice! When Mitzi first began singing the entire room of over 150 people fell silent. Not only did Mitzi captivate the audience with her gorgeous voice, but also with her flair for comedy in between songs! A natural Entertainer. I picked a selection of songs from the great american song book & she sang each one with such joy. Somewhere Over the Rainbow was just perfect, and when she sang America The Beautiful as the last song, we were all moved to our feet in a standing room only applause that only Mitzi could have made more beautiful than the song itself. Professional with personality plus, Mitzi is a true gem that sparkles."
