The evening, which begins at 7 PM, will celebrate the work of composer Will Reynolds. Vocalists will include Alysa Marsiella, Jennifer Hallie Rosen, Emily Senn, Zach Trimmer and Bradley White-Dale. Reynolds will also be on hand to accompany the performers and relate stories associated with each of the presented songs.

The New Voices series was founded by composer Scott Alan to "showcase some of today's brightest new talent in New York." Alan's debut recording, "Dreaming Wide Awake" — which features performances by Liz Callaway, Stephanie J. Block, Eden Espinosa, Cheyenne Jackson and Jonathan Groff, among others — is available by visiting www.scottalan.net. His new CD, "Keys: The Music of Scott Alan," is also now available.

Megan Hilty made her Broadway debut in Wicked and eventually played the role of Glinda in the touring and New York productions of that hit musical. She appeared in the musical Café Puttanesca at Pittsburgh's City Theatre and was also seen in Suds at the Oregon Cabaret Theatre. Hilty is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon's theatre program.

Will Reynolds is an actor/singer-songwriter born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, now living in NYC. His musical The Sixth Borough, written with Eric Price, has been workshopped at the Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma and at Indiana University's Premier Musicals program. Reynolds is also the creator of The Greenwood Tree, a musical with text by Shakespeare, which was first workshopped at the Carnegie Melon School of Drama and can now be found on iTunes under its former title, Sighs of Fire. As an actor, he toured North America with Mamma Mia!
