Michael Feinstein will conduct a tribute to singer-actor Liza Minnelli June 17 at the Los Angeles County Arboretum as the season opener of the Pasadena Pops Sierra Auto Concert Series, Broadway: The Golden Age. Among the featured soloists will be Minnelli’s Cabaret film co-star, Joel Grey.
Minnelli herself is scheduled to attend.

In a taped promo for the concert, Feinstein said, “To me the Golden Age of Broadway is an era of music and shows that are classic.... Like many things, Broadway has many golden ages and we're going to celebrate all of them.”
