Monday Nights, New Voices, the acclaimed concert series founded by composer Scott Alan to "showcase some of today's brightest new talent in New York," continues its eighth and final season Feb. 28 at the Duplex Cabaret Theatre.

The 7 PM concert celebrates the work of songwriters Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, who will be on hand to join performers on selections from their songbook and offer stories about their songs. Paul Staroba is the evening's musical director.

Performers include J. David Anderson, Kyle Kleiboeker, Analisa Leaming, Allison Linker and Stephen Mark Lukas.

Kate Wetherhead has appeared on Broadway in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Legally Blonde: the Musical and Off-Broadway in Ordinary Days (the original cast album now available on itunes), Sarah, Plain and Tall; Tatjana in Color; and Cam Jansen.
