"I'm Still Here!" Sondheim wrote.
And his lyrics suit no one better than the 91-year-young star whose continued vocal perfection, passion and persistence we are pleased to celebrate and honor, the marvelous Marilyn Maye!
From her first appearances as a pre-teen in amateur contests around Topeka, Kansas, Ms. Maye has won endless kudos around the world. "Super Singer," late-night host Johnny Carson dubbed her. And the Smithsonian Institution enshrined her recording of "Too Late Now" in its permanent collection of "Best Performers of the Best Compositions of the 20th Century."
Join us to celebrate an artist with more gusto than others half her age whom no less an expert than Ella Fitzgerald called "The greatest white female singer in the world."
Ms. Maye and Billy Stritch and others to be announced will fill the hall with song!
If you RSVP on-line, you must bring your payment the evening of the Dinner. If you do not attend and you made a reservation, you will still be expected to pay.
