The event, which will begin at 6 PM, will include the presentation of awards given by the Institute for Music and Neurologic Foundation to "those individuals in the arts, sciences and business communities whose work contributes to the advancement of vital, often groundbreaking music therapy research, development and programs." This year's award recipients include Shelley and Donald Rubin, the founders of the Music & Memory philanthropic organization; and Petr Janata, a cognitive neuroscientist at the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California Davis campus who is researching music's effect on the mind.

In addition to All About Me, which played the Henry Miller's Theatre, Feinstein has also appeared on Broadway in Michael Feinstein in Concert: Piano and Voice at the Lyceum Theatre in 1990, Michael Feinstein in Concert: Isn't It Romantic at the Booth in 1988, and Michael Feinstein in Concert, also at the Lyceum in 1988.

A five-time Grammy nominee, Feinstein is often credited with reinvigorating interest in the American popular song. The crooner has performed in concert halls around the world and now co-owns his own nightclub, Feinstein's at Loews Regency.
