WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Vocalist Hilary Kole began her professional career at the legendary Rainbow Room as the youngest singer ever to grace the stage. From there, Hilary co-wrote and starred in the long running Off-Broadway hit, Our Sinatra, and headlined at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, as well as international venues such as the Umbria Jazz Festival and the Nairn Jazz Festival. Hilary has also performed and recorded with the late Oscar Peterson, Hank Jones, and Michel LeGrand, to name but a few. Rex Reed calls her "hip and lovely, a musical marvel," and Time Out New York notes that "Kole presents her own distinctive style. She is the best at selling a song." Hilary will be joined by Grammy winning composer, arranger, vocalist, and jazz pianist of extraordinary range and sophistication, Billy Stritch. Stritch brings an easy sense of humor and showmanship to his performances, and the Times of London has written, "Equally gifted as a player and a singer, and doing both with no-holds-power, Stritch is not afraid to dazzle!" Together, Hilary and Billy make a sensational pair, breathing new life into the Great American Songbook.
