Your favorites from Porter, Kern, Gershwin, Mercer … and many more! Featuring the acclaimed trio of Jonathan Hawkins, Heather Lundstedt O’Neill, and Lee Lessack, this afternoon of song is sure to leave audiences with unforgettable memories, old and new. 

Touring extensively internationally, Hawkins has been a featured soloist in Dvorák’s Stabat Mater, Handel’s Messiah, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and Fauré’s Requiem. For the last 10 years, Lundstedt O’Neill has performed professionally all over the world. Broadway World stated, “Lundstedt’s gorgeous soprano is one of the best I’ve heard onstage in a long time.” Lessack’s graceful lyric baritone vocals and sophisticated yet endearing persona have made him a shining star of the international concert scene. Billboard Magazine calls his singing, “cabaret romanticism of a high order.”
