On October 23, 2017 at noon the great singer and entertainer, Marilyn Maye, joins up with two of 92nd st Y’s popular daytime raconteurs, Will Friedwald and Harvey Granat, for a special event.

Will Friedwald will share rare vintage footage from the legendary variety and talk shows of the 1960s and 1970s, and Harvey Granat will join to speak with Marilyn about her rise to fame and her experiences in the clubs and on television. Marilyn will sing a few songs accompanied by the award-winning composer, arranger, vocalist and jazz pianist Billy Stritch.

She has performed symphonic concerts with the Florida Symphony, the Philly Pops, the Phoenix Symphony, the Kansas City Symphony, the Omaha Symphony, and the Pasadena Symphony, conducted by Michael Feinstein.
