Curated by Michael Kerker and ASCAP, the Feb. 1-7 performances are presented in the Millennium Stage's Grand Foyer, which has been transformed into a cabaret. The series of 6 PM performances spotlight "up-and-coming composers at the piano with rising stars singing their works that are becoming the 'new standards,'" according to press notes.
