Rose Theater

World on A String: Swinging Songs of Broadway

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis and vocalist Kate Davis pay tribute to Broadway’s brightest lights. The famed avenue has been home to some of the most talented, inventive, and sophisticated composers, many with jazz-oriented roots. Harold Arlen wrote over 500 songs, including many for the stage as well as the classic “Over the Rainbow,” which was voted the No. 1 song by the Recording Industry Association of America and the National Endowment for the Arts. Jerome Kern and Irving Berlin are two of the most significant American theatrical composers of the early 20th century, each having been represented on Broadway hundreds of times. The list goes on: composers like Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, and Mel Brooks have penned time-tested musical gems that continue to uplift and entertain – both on Broadway and on record. In tonight’s performance, gutsy songstress Kate Davis shares her own fresh spin on the standards, which are sure to put you in a New York state of mind.
