Description

Laurie Anderson performs Hannah Tinti’s (author of The Good Thief and editor of One Story Magazine) “Milestones” inspired by Miles Davis’ classic piece of the same name.  Brandon Lewis (trumpet), David Frazier (drums) and Michael Forzano (bass) will perform a selection from  “Milestones.” 

Kelli O’Hara (South Pacific) and two-time Tony winner James Naughton sing and read a story by E.L. Doctorow about the inspiration of the song “Stardust.”  

Kelli O’Hara also performs Carson McCullers’ “Wunderkind,” drawn from the author’s own failed teenage career as a concert pianist; her reading will be preceded by a performance of Beethoven’s Opus 26 by pianist Derin Oge.
