Raissa Recommends July & August

Hi Friends:

Here's our fantastic line up for THE CONCERTS AT TUDOR CITY GREENS on Wednesday, August 5th at 6 pm. (Rain date, 8/6), so SAVE THE DATE. Deb Berman, David Colbert, Eric Michael Gillett, Tanya Holt, Sue Matsuki, Angela Schultz, Darren Williams and Jason Wynn. Our theme this month is "Blame It On The Summer Night" and we are thrilled to have David Caldwell, Sean Harkness, Brett Kristofferson and Bill Zeffiro acting as our accompanists. And, as a last minute addition, we are thrilled to feature Broadway's original "Johanna" from Sweeney Todd, Sarah Rice

On Thursday, July 30th, I have the honor of being the co-host of the Summer Oak Room Salon, at the legendary Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room www.algonquinhotel.com/summer-oak-room-salon, which is hosted by Mark Janas, and produced by Peter Napolitano. My special featured guest will be none other than Broadway Star and Multiple MAC Award Winner, Eric Michael Gillett. There is a modest $10 cover and $10 minimum, and performers may sign up to sing, act, play, etc. I'll be performing several times throughout the evening, as well as introducing all the talented folks who have been gracing this new event in the Oak Room. If you'd like to come, the only way to get a reservation is to email: oakroomsalon@aol.com and give them your name/email/contact info. The evening goes from 7 to 10 pm, with an intermission, and we'll get as many people on mic as we have time for! Hope to see lots of you there, both performers and "watchers"!
Love and light,
