Already set as judges for March 9th are legend Sandy Stewart, master teacher and jazz singer Natalie Douglas; award winning cabaret performer and director Jeff Harnar; Broadway musical director and arranger Mark Hummel; Time Out New York critic Adam Feldman; and music author and journalist Will Friedwald.
