After many years appearing with symphonies around the world, I recently teamed up with my wife, Beverly, to present a new concert evening of song and dance featuring the great American songbook. We have a long history of appearing together onstage. Early in our careers, we played opposite each other in shows like Singin’ In The Rain, Strike Up The Band, Hal Prince’s Show Boat, and Crazy For You. We debuted this new concert with the Heartland Festival Orchestra in Washington, IL. Under the baton of Maestro David Commanday, the sellout crowd enjoyed an evening of high-spirited renditions of classic standards like Night and Day, Let’s Face The Music and Dance and I’ve Got You Under My Skin, blended with some not-so-standards like There Once Was a Man from The Pajama Game and Look What Happened To Mabel from Mack and Mabel. Critics called the evening “Brilliant.”
