The Valentine's Day program, which falls on the eve of the 100th anniversary of his birth, will feature such Arlen tunes as "Stormy Weather," "It’s Only a Paper Moon," "Come Rain or Come Shine” and "Over The Rainbow."
Harold Arlen, perhaps best known for his score to "The Wizard of Oz," also wrote the music for Broadway's Bloomer Girl, St. Louis Woman, House of Flowers, Jamaica and Saratoga. Some of his many songs include "I've Got the World on a String," "Last Night When We Were Young," "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea," "Blues in the Night," "My Shining Hour," "What's Good About Goodbye" and "If I Only Had a Brain."
Tickets for the Arlen celebration are priced $30-$75 and are available by calling (212) 247-7800 or by visiting www.carnegiehall.org. Carnegie Hall is located in Manhattan at 57th Street and Seventh Avenue.
