Soprano Kathleen Kim will replace Tony Award winner Kristin Chenoweth as special guest for Dames at "C", the closing event in acclaimed mezzo-soprano Marilyn Horne's 2010 installment of The Song Continues..., to be presented at Carnegie Hall, on Friday, January 22 at 7:30pm. The change is due to Chenoweth's contractual obligations with the television series Glee, which have necessitated her cancellation.

Additional guests will include sopranos Keri Alkema, Elaine Alvarez, Amanda Majeski, and Jennifer Zetlan; and pianists Warren Jones, Michael Baitzer, Tamara Sanikidze, and David Shimoni. Horne will host the event. The program will include songs by Berlioz, Debussy, Stefano Donaudy, Reynaldo Hahn, Jake Heggie, Respighi, and Rachmaninoff.

The Song Continues... will also include five other public events, held January 19-22, which bring together voice and piano students with musical educators to celebrate the art of vocal performance.
