My View: A Young Singer Brings Down The House In Her Debut at Jazz at Lincoln Center

Well, to be totally transparent and precise, my granddaughter Zoe Gelman impressed the people who live in her house and our house as she performed with Corinna Sowers Adler and company in Music Over Manhattan, which was a John Senakwami production in the Appel Room. My review of 11 year old Zoe will start with the kiss and nervous smile she gave me in the dressing room before the show. She was bubbling over with excitement and wobbling on her newly purchased high heel shoes. Zoe sang NYC from Annie and was every bit “Andrea McArdle like”. I don’t know how this happened , the Gelman’s don’t even have a dog. Something probably happened in the gene pool because in 1980 we took her 6 year old future mother and her 8 year old old sister to see the original Annie. Corinna Sowers Adler is a wonderful inspiration and teacher to her students and she put on quite a show. Besides Corinna’s great acting, comedy, and thrilling soprano voice she presented her talented students Kevin W. Bergen, Grace Carlin, Gerry Mastrolia and Talia Wynzel along with Zoe. All professional inquires about Zoe should be directed to her proud Papa.  Check out the video
