Entitled Lotsa Cole Porter, the one-night-only event will feature Skitch Henderson and The New York Pops as well as the vocals of Broadway performers Danieley and Mazzie, who recently teamed forces for a production of Candide in San Francisco. Held in Carnegie Hall's Isaac Stern Auditorium, show time is scheduled for 8 PM.
Among the Porter tunes concertgoers can expect Danieley and Mazzie to croon are "Easy to Love," "It's DeLovely," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "All Through the Night," "In the Still of the Night," "So in Love," "Blow, Gabriel Blow," "From This Moment On," "Let's Do It," "I Get a Kick Out of You," "Friendship," "Don't Fence Me In," "Miss Otis Regrets," "You're the Top," "Anything Goes" and "Wunderbar." The evening will also include a concerto originally composed for Tommy Dorsey that has been lost for nearly 60 years. Nathaniel Shilkret's "Concerto for Trombone" will feature trombonist Jim Pugh.
