Michael Feinstein: The Enchanting Lena Horne at The Appel Room
Michael Feinstein continues the Jazz & Popular Song series with a glamorous tribute to an American national treasure: the enchanting Lena Horne (1917–2010). Horne was an iconic singer, dancer, actress, and activist who began her career at age 16 in the Cotton Club choir line, appeared in such musical films as Stormy Weather and Cabin in the Sky, and lit up Broadway stages in the Tony and Grammy Award-winning Lena Horne: The Lady and Her Music. Between her celebrated songbook, inspiring life story, and enduring charisma, Lena Horne offers a perfect concert theme for Michael Feinstein – the "Ambassador of the Great American Songbook." He still remembers the first time he saw Horne perform, noting that she had one of the most exciting stage presences he had ever witnessed. In the unparalleled splendor of The Appel Room, Michael Feinstein, the Tedd Firth Big Band, and special guest vocalists will perform tunes like "Stormy Weather," "Honeysuckle Rose," and "Can't Help Lovin' that Man," transporting audiences back to magical moments from throughout Horne's career.
