Wilson, who has often been called the quintessential interpreter of the popular American song, will share some of her wisdom May 2 (7-10 PM), May 3 (noon-3 PM) and May 4 (noon-3 PM) at the Singers Forum, which is now celebrating its 25th year as New York’s premiere vocal academy. Attendance for the classes is limited. Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, Julie Wilson has performed in such musicals as Kiss Me, Kate; South Pacific, Bells Are Ringing, The Pajama Game, Kismet, Show Boat, Silk Stockings, Follies, Company and A Little Night Music. In the past two decades, however, it has been on the intimate cabaret stage where the singer-actress has triumphed. Her solo recordings include “Julie Wilson Sings the Cy Coleman Songbook,” “Julie Wilson Sings the Gershwin Songbook,” “Julie Wilson at the St. Regis,” “Live from the Russian Tea Room” and “My Old Flame.”
The Singers Forum is located in Manhattan at 39 West 19th Street. For more information about the master classes or to register, call (212) 366 0541 or visit www.singersforum.org.
