Phil Furia told us about his checkered past as a barker at an amusement park! Then we talked about The Great American Songbook Live – Holiday Edition! There will be two shows on Saturday, December 15 -- at 3pm and 8pm in Thalian Hall’s Rainbow Room. Phil will be there with his wife Laurie Patterson showing archival photos to illustrate Phil’s stories about the composers and their music, and there’ll be a great group of performers as well (including Jack Krupicka and Julie Rehder, plus Cindy Hospedales). Reserved tickets are $25 and are going fast!
