Concerts Designed & Narrated by Michael Lasser
With Performances By Singers Cindy Miller and Alan Jones
In addition to giving talks, Michael Lasser also joins with highly-regarded singers Cindy Miller and Alan Jones. The topics are the same as for the talks, but there’s a lot less talking and a lot more music.
Left to their own devices, Cindy and Alan would probably sing jazz, but Cindy is a first-class mimic and Alan is also a perceptive accompanist. A musical chameleon, Cindy turns into Julie Andrews one minute and Ella Fitzgerald the next. But her own distinct stage personality underscores everything she does. Alan does everything from conduct choirs to play piano and sing in cabarets. Sometimes you close your eyes and you swear you’re hearing Billy Eckstine.
professionals have such varied experience, and such confidence in their
own performing and in the way they work together that they look forward
to trying new things. Michael Lasser says of them, “I’ve thrown every
kind of song at them, including some they’d never heard of, from ragtime
to 19th century sentimental ballads to rock ‘n’ roll. They love the
challenge and the playfulness.”
