The evening will begin with a 4 pm private virtual VIP reception followed by a 70-minute concert at 5 pm.
The Great American Songbook, also known as "American Standards," is the canon of the most important and influential American popular songs and jazz standards from the early 20th century to the 1950s that were created for Broadway theater, musical theater, and Hollywood musical film and includes standards by George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer, and Richard Rodgers, among others.
Join us for a delightful evening of great music with performances by seasoned broadway performers, ETC students, a national virtual choir, and a very special surprise guest artist.
For more fun, join us for the VIP pre-show reception with ETC's Director of Education and Outreach, Brian McDonald, guest host, George Wendt (Norm on "Cheers"), and the Executive Director of The Great American Songbook Foundation, Christopher Lewis.
