An incredible cast of singers, including Mikaela Bennett, Julie Benko, Nikki Renée Daniels, Laura Darrell, Ali Ewoldt, Robyn Hurder, Emilie Kouatchou, Emily Skinner, Jessica Vosk, Sally Wilfert, and Clyde Alves, comes together to celebrate the life and legacy of Broadway’s beloved Rebecca Luker, who died in 2020 after a battle with ALS.
The concert features 20 world-premiere songs from the 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 18 of the songs as part of the Project Broadway series at Symphony Space. The rest of the songbook has yet to be heard.
Composers include Carmel Dean, Scott Eyerly, Jenny Giering, Mike Heitzman & Ilene Reid, Henry Krieger, Andrew Lippa, David Loud, Martin Lowe, Joshua Rosenblum, Sam Willmott, and many more.
Music direction by Joseph Thalken.
