An Evening Of Cole Porter & Beyond Via Zoom With World Renowned Cabaret Artist Steve Ross for $5000
Ligeti Artists presents, a personalized livestream concert with world renowned cabaret artist Steve Ross.
This spirited evening brings together Cole Porter's brilliant, sometimes racy list songs like "You're The Top" and "Let’s Do It" with bitter-sweet, passionate ballads such as "What Is This Thing Called. Love?" and "I Concentrate on You."
Steve Ross takes his audience on a musical and anecdotal journey through the songs of this most sophisticated composer – from his early successes in the Twenties ("I’m In Love Again," "You Do Something To Me It") through his glory years in the Thirties ("It’s D’Lovely," "In the Still of the Night,") the Forties (noted for his masterpiece Kiss Me Kate ), and his later songs from the Fifties (" Love Paris," "C’est Magnifique" and "It’s All Right With Me"). We'll also hear from his contemporaries the Gershwins, Irving Berlin and Rodgers & Hart as well as Transatlantic hits from the pens and worlds of Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, and the Master Noel Coward.
The show concludes with a tribute to the great Fred Astaire for whom Porter wrote his undying classic, "Night and Day".
"A fine dose of classy cabaret"

"Fred Astaire must be dancing on the ceiling. Steve Ross is an American Cabaret treasure."

I look forward to meeting the host to go over such items as when they might like my performance - before or after the meal for example. Or as a cocktail concert. If it's to be a surprise, I'd like to know something about the person(s) / honoree. I've had success customizing songs like "Let's Do it." for example. In any event, I like to chat with the host (-ess) to discover which songs from the International Songbook are favorites and/or have a particular meaning to them. For example, they might have loved visiting Paris - I would then sing "I Love Paris" and perform my Edith Piaf piano.
