You’re the Top! The music of Cole Porter

You’re the Top!  The Music of Cole Porter

Featuring Mara Bonde, soprano; Christian Figueroa, tenor; and Dan Loschen, piano

Cole Porter is undoubtedly one of the best-loved composers in the history of American music.  His songs run the gamut from love-struck torch songs, to contemplative meditations, to sly double-entendre, all with sophistication and wit.  You’ll be sure to recognize quite a few of these songs, made famous by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, but we hope we’ve found at least a couple new ones for you to fall in love with.  See you there!
