Lincoln Center Songbook
On April 26, 2010, I was the featured artist in the highly acclaimed Songbook Series at Lincoln Center, New York. The concert took place at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts in the Bruno Walter Auditorium. The series has been running for fifteen years and attendees have included composers Stephen Sondheim and Hal Prince. The Songbook Series is hosted and produced by John Znidarsic.
My work was directed by Jessica Redish (The Adding Machine) with musical direction by Kathleen Tagg (Stern Fellowship Award, Carnegie Hall) and Gillian Berkowitz (Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia, Wicked, Billy Elliot)
My songs were performed by singers....
- Doreen Montalvo (In The Heights)
- Selloane Nkhela (Lion King)
- Miles Aubrey (Jersey Boys)
- Anne Fraser Thomas
- Chris Critelli
- Stephanie Spano
- Mary MacKenzie
The singers were be accompanied by amazing musicians; Kathleen Tagg playing piano, Joshua Mark Samuels on the drums, Paulo Coleho on guitar, cellist Isabel Castellvi, harpist Jacqui Kerrod and phenomenal bass player Ramon de Bruyn.
It was an incredible evening and one that I will always be grateful for.
