Showcase today!

Today is our Showcase, which this year will meld two of my great loves – cabaret and American Song. I’m excited about the program, which will open with the title song, “Look for me in the songs” by Craig Carnelia. The final solo is John Bucchino’s “Grateful,” which pretty much sums up how I feel about working with these great kids. We close with the song “Joy” by Ricky Ian Gordon as a big group number, which sounded GREAT yesterday.

Too much to do to write much more, but if you are in the vicinity of Underwood Memorial Baptist Church (76th & Hillside) at 3:30pm, please come on in! Admission is free and you will hear wonderful high school age singers from the entire Milwaukee area (and I’m going to sing “What a movie!” from Trouble in Tahiti, which seems to be my new signature piece).
