News   James Snyder, Greg Hildreth, Jenni Barber, Ben Fankhauser Will Sing Songs of Jacob Yandura & Rebekah Greer Melocik
 
The Songs of Jacob Yandura & Rebekah Greer Melocik will be held Feb. 16 at 54 Below. James Snyder, Greg Hildreth, Jenni Barber and Ben Fankhauser are among the evening's lineup.

The 9:30 PM concert features music direction and arrangements by Matt Gallagher and is produced by Erica Rotstein.

Joining Snyder (If/Then), Hildreth (Cinderella), Barber (Wicked) and Fankhauser (Newsies) are Charity Angel Dawson (Side Show), Dan Domenech (Rock of Ages), Kristolyn Lloyd (Heathers, Witness Uganda), Aaron Ramey (The Bridges of Madison County), Jon-Michael Reese (The Book of Mormon), Margo Seibert (Rocky), Betsy Morgan (Found, Les Miserables), Christine Dwyer (Wicked), Katrina Rose Dideriksen (Hairspray), Eric William Morris (The Last Goodbye) and Marja Harmon (The Book of Mormon).

They will be accompanied by Matt Gallagher on piano, Jake Schwartz on guitar, Clint de Ganon on drums and Aiden Moore on bass.

According to press notes, "Their 54 Below debut will offer a first look at their three newest musicals: The Last Queen of Canaan, about a young girl's search for agency amidst the landscape of racial and social inequality in the 1930s; Feral, a reaction to the numbing dissatisfaction that results from our never-ending quest to become smarter, stronger, healthier, wealthier, better in all conceivable ways; and Wringer, a story about connection, told through the lens of a 10-year-old boy who forges a powerful bond with a pigeon. Presented together, these pieces offer a perfect sampling of the Yandura & Melocik brand: universal themes explored in unexpected contexts, lush and lyrical compositions that show impressive musical range (from pop to folk to gospel), and the excavation of shadows to expose a message of hopefulness and light. After just one evening with Jacob and Rebekah, you will fall in love with them and their work (and it is only a matter of time before the rest of the world follows suit!)."
