About this Event

The Freedom Park Bandshell in the Town of LaGrange will be the venue for a swinging "Showtunes! Big Band Style" show presented by The Big Band Sound 25-piece jazz orchestra to benefit the Sparrow's Nest local charity. Performances are Saturday, June 26th at 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 27th at 2 p.m.

"Showtunes! Big Band Style" will feature The Big Band Sound 25-piece jazz orchestra, including six vocalists and swing dance performers, in a show spotlighting smash hits from Broadway and Hollywood. At the core of the Great American Songbook are timeless songs that originated on the Broadway stage and Hollywood screen. In this show, songs will be performed from all of the greatest American composers and lyricists, including Cole Porter, Richard Rogers, Lorenz Hart, Oscar Hammerstein, Duke Ellington, Frank Loesser, and Jerome Kern. Plus, classic standards will be presented from the most famous Broadway shows and Hollywood movies, including "South Pacific", "My Fair Lady", "Guys and Dolls", "Kiss Me Kate", "The Wizard of Oz", and "Casablanca".

What better way to enjoy a journey through Broadway and Hollywood favorites than in the most exciting setting of a live big band. Many of the selections to be presented in "Showtunes! Big Band Style" were popularized by big bands and big band singers, including Bobby Darin's "Don't Rain on My Parade", Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight", Ella Fitzgerald's "Johnny One Note", and Cab Calloway's "Everybody Eats When They Come to My House". Also included will be the anthems "You'll Never Walk Alone", "As Time Goes By", and "Over the Rainbow".

Although tickets won't be required for entry, the suggested donation is $20 per person. Proceeds from this show will benefit the Sparrow's Nest local charity and more than ten thousand dollars was raised over the past three shows. Sparrow's Nest of the Hudson Valley provides meals to the families of caregivers and children diagnosed with any type of cancer. More information about Sparrow's Nest can be found at sparrowsnestcharity.org.
