Idina will take part in a tribute concert to the late, great Marvin Hamlisch on January 29th with the Pittsburg Symphony Orchestra. From the PSO website:
Join your PSO for a special one-night-only tribute concert celebrating the life and music of Marvin Hamlisch. With three Oscars, four Emmys, four Grammys, two Golden Globes, a Tony and a Pulitzer to his name, Marvin Hamlisch truly was “One Singular Sensation.” His indelible body of work includes such legendary hits as “The Way We Were” and “One (Singular Sensation)” from the scores he wrote for more than 40 films and eight Broadway shows, including A Chorus Line.
The evening brings together your PSO and an amazing array of stars. To date, the guest artists joining the PSO include:
Tony Award-winner and Broadway star Idina Menzel singing “What I Did for Love” and “At the Ballet,”
Lucie Arnaz and Robert Klein, the original stars of Marvin’s Broadway show They’re Playing Our Song,
the incomparable singer and pianist Kevin Cole,
celebrated English actress and singer Maria Friedman,
the All-Star College Chorus, under the direction of Robert Page, and
acclaimed conductor J. Ernest Green.
We know more guest artists will be joining this stellar group, so please continue to visit this page for updates. All net proceeds benefit the Marvin Hamlisch Pops Artistic Excellence Fund. Many thanks go to PNC for its generous support of this special concert.

Let’s all cross our fingers from now until January 13th that Idina’s now double rescheduled Carnegie Hall will occur! Because of the street closures around Carnegie Hall and, as Idina said, “Frankencrane,” the concert originally rescheduled for this Sunday is now January 13th. All tickets for the original date will be honored in January. If you have any questions, call Carnegie at 212-247-7800.
Also next year, Idina will be participating in Lincoln Center’s American Songbook concert series on March 1st along with Brian D’Arcy James and Alice Ripley. They’ll be honoring Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey. More information to come later. You can see the 2013 lineup of the American Songbook series here.
This weekend, I’ll be updating the gallery with new pics that have been sent in from fans from past concerts. If you have some you’d like to share, please email me at Jill(at)idina-here.com.
