Maureen McGovern

Called “a musical tour de force” by the Los Angeles Times, Maureen McGovern collected an Oscar for "The Morning After" and a Grammy nod for the album "The Pleasure of His Company."

The singer, who earned a Drama Desk Award for her role in the Broadway musical "Little Women," is celebrated for the songs "Can You Read My Mind" from Superman, the Oscar-winning "We May Never Love Like This Again" from The Towering Inferno, and "Different Worlds" from the television series Angie.

The New York Times called McGovern’s "A Long and Winding Road" album “a captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960’s to the early ’70s.” 

Andrea McArdle first charmed audiences as the little orphan in the mega musical Annie, earning the distinction of being the youngest performer ever to garner a Tony nomination for “Best Lead Actress in a Musical.”

McArdle received the Theater World and Outer Critics' Circle Awards for her performance. Since then, she has graced stages all over the world in "Jerry’s Girls," "Les Miserables," and "Beauty and the Beast," working with entertainment legends such as Ethel Merman, Liza Minnelli, Julie Andrews, Bob Hope, Liberace, and Frank Sinatra.

McArdle has appeared on television’s "All My Children" and headlining her own PBS special, "Andrea McArdle on Broadway."

Faith Prince "delights in Guys & Dolls" and "Bells Are Ringing" with her “sublime vocal
virtuosity,” praised Newsday. Her performance in "Guys and Dolls" scored Prince a Tony, Drama
Desk, and Outer Critics Circle awards.

Her role in "A Catered Affair" earned nods for Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle awards. She has also appeared in the Broadway musicals "Annie," "The Little Mermaid," "Bells Are Ringing," "Noises Off," and "Disaster!"

Prince has collaborated with the Boston Pops, Utah Symphony, Cincinnati Pops, and Philly Pops. Her albums include Total Faith and the award-winning A Leap of Faith.

Music director-composer-vocalist and Jazz pianist Billy Stritch has worked on a series of acclaimed productions, including "The Mel Tormé Songbook," "The Jazz of Cy Coleman," and Liza Minnelli’s Tony-winning show "Liza’s at the Palace."

His latest solo release is "Billy Stritch Sings Mel Tormé," a salute to one of his musical heroes. Stritch is also featured on Linda Lavin’s "Possibilities" and "Sunday in New York" with Christine Ebersole. He received a Grammy nod for "Does He Love You," recorded by Reba McEntire.
