Although I’ve been up in Toronto rehearsing with Disney, I left part of my heart with Marquee Five. My award-winning vocal group has plowed forward in my absence, adding female swing Lynsey Buckelew to keep the Alto line flowing, and the five of them are kicking butt in New York City this month! There are TWO opportunities to see Marquee Five in November, and I highly recommend you go see them, since the shows they are performing in are stellar entertainment events!
“MAC Presents They Write The Songs”: a night of music featuring some of New York's best songwriters
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Red Cross to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy
The Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs is proud to announce a new annual show to be held each fall, called “MAC presents THEY WRITE THE SONGS.” The inaugural show will be held Sunday, November 18th at 4pm at Baruch College’s Engelman Recital Hall (Lexington Avenue at 25th Street). Each year, this show will present the work of selected songwriters, highlighting both those who are well-established, as well as those who are on the rise. Songs written by these outstanding songwriters will be performed throughout the show by singers who have previously either won or been nominated for MAC Awards, or in some cases, by the songwriters themselves. The songwriters selected for the inaugural show of this new annual series are Jeff Blumenkrantz, Barry Kleinbort, Johnny Rodgers, Mary Liz McNamara, Nate Buccieri and Scott Evan Davis. The host for the evening will be Grammy award winning songwriter Julie Gold. Nate Buccieri will be the musical director.
With performances by: Penny Fuller, Rebecca Luker, Karen Mason, Alysha Umphress, Liz Lark Brown, Marquee Five, Colleen McHugh, Lennie Watts, and Jonathan Whitton.
