Vocalist Maude Maggart headlines 8 pm Schuster Center presentation of “The Irving Berlin Songbook”
On Friday, January and Saturday, January 10, 2009 at 8 pm in the Schuster Center, vocalist Maude Maggart joins DPO Assistant Conductor Patrick Reynolds and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra in a program entitled Maude Maggart – The Irving Berlin Songbook. Maude will perform such Berlin favorites as Always, You Keep Coming Back Like A Song, The Song Is Ended, and Alexander’s Ragtime Band.
Bewitching. Utterly enchanting. Stunning. Transfixing. These are but a few of the adjectives critics have used to describe Maude Maggart. Maude has redefined the role of “cabaret singer,” knocking them dead at the hottest nightclubs around the country and earning praise for her “singular freshness and unmannered sensuality.” Stephen Holden, The New York Times, writes, “Beautiful, poised, intelligent and gently humorous, Ms. Maggart delivers songs as sustained ethereal sighs. There are ghosts living inside a voice whose pinwheeling vibrato evokes a blend of operetta and gramophone styles buffed with a contemporary understanding.”
Tickets $27.00 – $75.00.
