Devoted to the songs of lyricist Johnny Mercer, the concert will also feature Liz Callaway, Eric Comstock, and Tom Wopat, with NYFOS co-founder Steven Blier at the piano. During Mercer's extensive career, he wrote with such noted composers as Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael, Jerome Kern, Henry Mancini, and Richard Whiting.
NYFOS was founded by Blier and Michael Barrett in 1988, and is dedicated to creating intimate song concerts that both entertain and educate.
Tickets to the gala, which includes a post-concert dinner at Remi, are $500 and $750 per person. To purchase tickets or to obtain further information, call 646-230-8380.
