Set on Christmas Eve in New York City, the story follows three old friends and music icons, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen and Jimmy Van Heusen as they drink, fight and sing in what is the twilight of their careers.

MOZART AND DEBUSSY: A CONVERSATION AND CONCERT

July 13th, Friday, 8PM Concert
Mozart—a genius of the Classical period epitomizing elegance and symmetry. Debussy—an avant-garde artist of the early 20th century introducing new notions of color and sound in music. And, while not typically associated with one another, this faculty artist performance highlights the individual sensuality that permeates each composer’s work. Attend the free Pre-Concert Conversation with Paul Berry to engage in a dialogue about these seemingly uncorrelated composer and the underlying themes that connect them. $20 - 60 for Adults, $10 Young Adults 18-25 and free for kids under 18!
