An incredible cast of singers, including Julie Benko, Mikaela Bennett, Andréa Burns, Carolee Carmello, Nikki Renée Daniels, Laura Darrell, Ali Ewoldt, Marina Kondo, Emilie Kouatchou, Bryce Pinkham, Scarlett Strallen, Jessica Vosk, and Sally Wilfert comes together to celebrate the life and legacy of Broadway’s beloved Rebecca Luker.
The concert features 20 world-premiere songs from The Rebecca Luker Songbook—a collection of over 80 compositions inspired by and written especially for Rebecca’s unique and wide-ranging talent. In 2018, Rebecca performed a selection of the songbook as part of the Project Broadway series at Symphony Space. What you'll hear at this unforgettable concert has never been performed before!
