The Songbook Sundays series, created and hosted by Deborah Grace Winer, continues November 20 at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Dizzy's Club with an evening celebrating the songs of the late American composer Irving Berlin.

Entitled Always Irving Berlin, the 5 PM and 7:30 PM performances feature Obie winner Darius de Haas (Rent, Carousel, Running Man), Grammy winner Debby Boone, and Anaïs Reno. Attendees can expect to hear such Berlin classics as "Cheek to Cheek," "There’s No Business Like Show Business," "Let’s Face the Music," "Let Yourself Go," and more.

Music director Joe Davidian leads a band that features Jay Leonhart on bass, Jerome Jennings on drums, and Abdias Armenteros on tenor saxophone.

Winer said in an earlier statement, “We’re thrilled that our new Songbook Sundays shows have immediately become so wildly popular. The world now is such a giant 'Yikes'—bringing musicians, vocalists, and audiences together at Dizzy’s for the pure joy of it is a happy, healing balm, and we couldn’t have imagined how much fun we’d have making this new community. We’re so happy Songbook Sundays will continue in 2023. It’ll be a blast.”

Best known for contributing the songs to the Golden Age musical Annie Get Your Gun, Berlin was an iconic fixture in the Great American Songbook, responsible for such standards as "Alexander's Ragtime Band," "Easter Parade," "Puttin' on the Ritz," "Cheek to Cheek," "White Christmas," "There's No Business Like Show Business," and "God Bless America." More recently on Broadway, Berlin's music has been heard in stage adaptations of the films Holiday Inn and White Christmas, both including songs written for those films along with other songs from the Berlin catalogue.
