Linda Eder will sing for a select audience of fans at the Sony Studios on Jan. 18 at 7:30 PM. The concert, which will mostly feature cuts from her solo albums, is being taped for broadcast on PBS in March, according to a concert spokesman.
The walk-in audience is limited to 175-150 seats and is on a first come, first serve basis only. Audience members must wear black casual clothing only to gain admittance to the concert and arrive by 6 PM. The doors will open at 6:30 PM.
Eder, who starred in Jekyll & Hyde, has often been a voice for her husband Frank Wildhorn's musicals, having recorded three version of Jekyll, a concept album of The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Civil War, a show she recently performed in Houston at the Alley Theatre. Her solo albums, from which this concert will be drawn, include standards like "Over the Rainbow" and "Bridge Over Troubled Water" as well as Broadway tunes from Nine, Jekyll and Man of La Mancha and original compositions by Wildhorn and others.
