We were thrilled to welcome the incredible Billy Stritch in his music-filled evening of SUMMER SONGS WITH BILLY STRITCH. He is one of the premier singer-pianists on the New York and national jazz and cabaret scenes, and began his career in Houston, Texas, where he formed the vocal trio Montgomery, Plant and Stritch. They performed in New York and Europe from 1983-1990. A chance meeting with Liza Minnelli in March of 1991 resulted in her asking him to create vocal arrangements for the record-breaking extravaganza Liza Stepping Out at Radio City Music Hall. In addition to his 25-year collaboration with Liza, Billy recently toured with the legendary Tony Bennett as Tony’s pianist and musical director. As solo entertainer, he has performed his own shows including tributes to Mel Tormé and Cy Coleman in concert halls and nightclubs across the country. Billy also serves as music director for such leading vocalists as Linda Lavin, Christine Ebersole, Paulo Szot and Marilyn Maye. He is the co-writer of the Grammy-winning song “Does He Love You” recorded by Reba McEntire and Linda Davis.
