Arts & Artists at St. Paul will present "In Celebration Of Life 7" at the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in NYC on Nov. 22 at 8 PM.

The annual concert brings together performers, composers and lyricists to create new songs focusing on life. All songs are written specifically for the event and receive their debut that night.

This "Celebration" will feature performances by Tom Anderson, Liz Callaway (Cats), David Campbell, David Garrison (Titanic), Randy Graff (High Society), Judy Kaye (Ragtime), Alix [sic] Korey, Norm Lewis (Side Show), Karen Mason, Marin Mazzie (Ragtime), Cass Morgan (Violet), Phillip Officer, Evan Pappas (Parade), Alice Ripley (Les Miserables) and Julie Wilson, among others.

Writing songs for this roster of Broadway stars will be Ricky Ian Gordon, Carol Hall (The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas), Nan Knighton (The Scarlet Pimpernel), Henry Krieger (Side Show) and Stephen Schwartz (Godspell).

Producing and directing the evening is John Znidarsic, who founded "Celebration" in 1990. Over the last six years, the concert has premiered 125 songs, a massive accumulation that resulted in the Jan. 1998 release of "The Best of In Celebration of Life 1-5," a recording of highlights from the benefit's first five years.

Tickets for "In Celebration of Life 7" are $60 (priority reserved seating and post-performance reception) and $30 and are available by calling (212) 265-3495 ext. 309. All proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and the Momentum Project.
