“I’ve spent the last year writing a song cycle, new tunes inspired by the Golden Era of the 20th Century—Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, Bernstein, Rogers—and now some of my favorite vocalists are going to sing them for you.
Please join us for a very special evening of elegance, romance, frivolity, and ‘Occasional Shivers.’ ” —CS
