News Story

This week at the Schimmel: Broadway singers and dancers pay tribute to Irving Berlin and rising opera star Anna Christy brings her sparkling voice to the stage.

American Showstoppers featuring the Fred Barton Orchestra: An Evening with Irving Berlin
Friday, March 6 | 7:30 p.m.
George Gershwin has called him the greatest songwriter that has ever lived. Irving Berlin's work is the gold standard in American show music, spanning more than 100 years from his Russian-Jewish origins, through his earliest purely American hit, Alexander's Ragtime Band (which was played on the Titanic in 1912), through the entire 20th century evolution of the Broadway musical. On March 6, noted arranger Fred Barton and his 14-piece orchestra and cast of 17 Broadway singers and dancers including Tony winners Karen Ziemba, Brent Barrett, and Lee Roy Reams, will bring an entire century of Irving Berlin's greatest songs to life once more.
