“WINTER AWAKENINGS-CD RELEASE CELEBRATION CONCERT”
MARCH 19, 7:00-8:30 pm LIVE & LIVESTREAM
MAC Award and BroadwayWorld nominee, Renee Katz, makes her Pangea debut in celebration of the release of her CD, WINTER AWAKENINGS featuring Maury Yeston’s passionate DECEMBER SONGS, along with standards from the Great American Songbook and Musical Theater.
Renee has appeared in Cabaret venues throughout NYC, in The Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention at Jazz at Lincoln Center and at its Jerome Kern tribute show, All The Things You Are, at Weil Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall. She has received critical acclaim for her autobiographical show Never Been Gone, based on a poetry/CD set she created with Musical Director Christopher Marlowe. Tonight, Renee is joined by her fabulous Musical Director/Arranger John M. Cook and Cellist Alon Bisk. The evening is directed by Peter Schlosser.
“Singer Renee Katz took to her work as a storyteller and emerged from the shutdown with a new piece of art. Observe the emotional content present in every aspect of the Yeston piece…” -Stephen Mosher, Broadway World Cabaret
“And while it’s a treat regardless to hear Yeston’s luscious melodies from a pitch perfect soprano like Katz’s, her voice warm and soothing, like cocoa upon coming in from the cold, it’s that parallel that really resonates and makes the words she sings so gosh darn powerful.” – Matt Smith, Theater Pizzazz
“Renee Katz is a buoyant, optimistic Cabaret star whose powerful, rapturous, playful soprano reminds me of Barbara Cook because, like Cook, Renee Katz sings with her whole heart in the same exquisitely intimate way Cook did.” – Myra Chanin, Theater Pizzazz
At the door, cash only–$25.
$20 food/beverage minimum per person. The house opens at 6:00 pm.
WINTER AWAKENINGS CD will be available at half price for those at Pangea.
