"Michael Feinstein’s MGM Movie Classics" (July 13) will feature guest singers Ron Raines and Christine Ebersole, and Catherine Russell and Chuck Cooper will perform at "The Gershwins and Me" (Sept. 7).
"Classical Mystery Tour: Music of the Beatles" will be performed Aug. 10, with the Fab-revivalist foursome Classical Mystery Tour supported by the orchestra conducted by Martin Herman.
