Stephanie Blythe, mezzo-soprano; Craig Terry, piano

“Carnegie Hall is no place for cabaret songs, an art form that thrived in Parisian cafes and Berlin nightclubs. Yet, on Friday the mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe, who can do anything, turned Carnegie’s 2,800-seat Stern Auditorium into her personal cabaret haunt.” – New York Times, May 17, 2015

Lauded for his “sensitive and stylish” (The New York Times) and “superb” (Opera News) playing, pianist Craig Terry is Music Director of the Ryan Opera Center at Lyric Opera of Chicago.



Join legendary mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe and pianist Craig Terry as they take the audience on a musical journey through the American Songbook, sharing gems from some of the greatest composers and lyricists of their age, including Irving Berlin, Saul Chaplin and Sammy Cahn, Harry Warren and Mack Gordon, Jerome Kern and B.G. DeSylva, Harold Arlen, George Gershwin and Johnny Mercer. From tender loves songs to passionate torch songs to melodies that remind us to always “to look for the silver lining,” they defined their generation and helped see our country through the Great Depression and two World Wars.

This will be a memorable afternoon of music making and a celebratory conclusion to Parlance Chamber Concert’s 9th season!



Stephanie Blythe will announce the program selections from the stage.
