Luft will join Tony Award winner Karen Olivo (West Side Story, In the Heights), Tony winner Heather Headley (Aida, The Lion King) and original Broadway Mary Poppins star Ashley Brown for the 8 PM concert event at Carnegie Hall, which will boast the original line-up and arrangements from Garland's 1961 concert.

The New York Pops, under the baton of Steven Reineke, will perform the original arrangements of such Garland classics as "The Man That Got Away," "Come Rain or Come Shine," "That's Entertainment" and "Over the Rainbow."

Garland's original Carnegie Hall concert was recorded by Capitol Records on April 23, 1961, earned five Grammy Awards (Album of the Year and Best Female Vocal of the Year) and spent 95 weeks on the charts (13 of which were in the No. 1 slot).

Luft most recently performed her solo evening Songs My Mother Taught Me: The Judy Garland Songbook at Feinstein's at Loews Regency in early January. She appeared in the Broadway production of Promises, Promises and the national tours of Guys and Dolls, They're Playing Our Song and Jerry Herman's Broadway Years. She also appeared in the UK bow of Irving Berlin's White Christmas.
