Just announced for the Summer of 2013, Feinstein explores Hollywood’s most storied production company with the Pasadena Pops performing rare, original orchestrations from Metro Goldwyn Mayer.

   MGM ushered in the Golden Age of Hollywood with epic titles:  Gone with the Wind, The Philadelphia Story, Ben-Hur, The Wizard of Oz, An American in Paris, Singin’ in the Rain, Gigi, Victor Victoria, Guys and Dolls and more! Guest stars include Christine Ebersole (a two-time Tony Award winner for roles in 42nd Street and Grey Gardens); and Ron Raines (who recently starred in Broadway’s Follies and Newsies) join the orchestra to recreate legendary moments from artists such as Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, June Allyson, and Fred Astaire.



   Experience this wonderful evenings on July 13th at the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Arcadia. The festivities begin at 7:30p. Other fine shows featuring Feinstein at the helm: The Great American Songbook on June 1st; and The Gershwin’s and Me on September 7th. Here’s a link for complete information:

   Michael Feinstein will be honored by the Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters on May 10th at the Sportsman’s Lodge in Studio City. As a member, I plan on being in attendance to witness this well-deserved accolade.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
