The Best Things in Life and Beyond!
Come enjoy a musical evening on Thursday, January 10th in the auditorium with Katie Eagleson and listen to a sophisticated set of standards and surprises from the Great American Songbook and beyond. This show features a medley by one of the greatest lyricists of the American Songbook, Johnny Mercer. You’ll also hear something by Mercer’s protégé, Alan Bergman, and his wife and writing partner, Marilyn Bergman. As usual, there will be something in French and a little taste of jazz. A highlight of the show will be songs by the composers, Stephen Sondheim and Cole Porter. This show is sure to please anyone with an appreciation of well-crafted music and lyrics.
As one critic wrote, “Eagleson’s voice is beautiful, but it’s how she utilizes that beauty to communicate the meaning of the lyrics that makes her singing so memorable.”
Katie will be joined by Lenny Pierro at the piano.
Katie quickly became a “Bay Village Favorite” about ten years ago and we have had her perform every year.
Katie will have CDs with her, and our accounting department prefers that you pay in cash or check rather than have us put it on your bill. Thank you for your understanding.
