The 7:30 PM concert, part of the "Standard Time with Michael Feinstein" series, is entitled Beyond the Rainbow: The Songs of E.Y. "Yip" Harburg. In addition to McGovern, Feinstein will also welcome Noah Racey and Catherine Russell. E. Y. Harburg wrote the lyrics for Finian's Rainbow and "The Wizard of Oz." Among his most famous songs are "April in Paris," "Brother Can You Spare a Dime" and "It's Only a Paper Moon."

Maureen McGovern's performing credits are numerous and varied. She appeared on Broadway in Little Women, Nine, The Pirates of Penzance and The Threepenny Opera, and her many recordings include the Grammy-nominated "The Pleasure of His Company" and the Academy Award-winning song "The Morning After." She was also seen in the films "The Towering Inferno," "Airplane!" and "The Cure for Boredom," and she appeared at the Sundance Theatre in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg and Jerry Herman's Dear World.

A four-time Grammy nominee, Michael Feinstein is often credited with reinvigorating the American popular song. The crooner has performed in concert halls around the world and on Broadway and now co-owns his own nightclub, Feinstein's at the Regency. His numerous solo recordings include "Michael and George: Feinstein Sings Gershwin," "Big City Rhythms" "Romance On Film, Romance On Broadway," "Michael Feinstein with The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra" and "Only One Life: The Songs of Jimmy Webb."
