Michael Feinstein Interview

"This is one of the great orchestras of the world and they have no snobism about the music that they play. The great thing is that this music lends itself so much to the orchestral sweep and majesty of an orchestra," says Feinstein.

The evening will feature the music of Broadway and Feinstein will perform songs from the Great American Songbook.

"Which I think of course is the greatest music of the 20th century; of the Gershwins and Cole Porter and Irving Berlin and songs that are very resonant in people's lives."
