We love a piano! Revel in close harmonies and toe-tapping rhythms as OP sings pop and jazz standards from the "Great American Songbook." Combining OP's signature blended harmonies with director Tim Harbold's experience as a cabaret pianist, the show will include familiar favorites from George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald, the Beatles, and more.
The May 11 cabaret-style concert will also feature a special guest appearance by cabaret singer Valerie Anastasio. For twenty five years, Valerie Anastasio & Tim Harbold have invited audiences to their unique world of song, blending jazz standards, show tunes, and comic cabaret with their own distinctive musicianship and humor. Their shows encompass a trademark variety of styles, ranging from intimate renditions of Gershwin and Sondheim to torch songs to zany, crowd-pleasing performances of Cole Porter's "The Physician" and Barry Manilow's "Copacabana." Even classical art songs can enter the mix to keep the audiences surprised and entertained.
