Hits from the American Songbook at Bennett Gordon Hall

A glittering finale to the summer programs at Ravinia Steans Music Institute, this afternoon of music theater and jazz songbook standards uniquely taps into each singer’s stage persona to tug at a vast range of emotions within this music of our time. Each of this season’s 15 fellows is featured, further spotlighting their dramatic range in arrangements of these stage and club classics by Jeremy Kahn, one of Chicago’s busiest pianists between jazz venues and pit orchestras. Kahn returns as bandleader for the revue, joined by his crack rhythm section of bassist Larry Gray and drummer Joel Spencer.
