“Ring Them Bells!
Rob Fischer Celebrates Kander and
Airs Friday, February 15th at 8pm on WTVP-HD
“All That Jazz,” “Mister Cellophane,” “Wilkommen,” “A Quiet Thing,” “Maybe This Time” and the
incomparable “New York, New York” are some of the dozens of songs written by John Kander and Fred Ebb over
the course of their creative collaboration. They are also some of the great songs that Broadway stars Marin
Mazzie (Kiss Me Kate, Next to Normal) and Jason Danieley (Curtains, Next to Normal)
will perform, along with Chita Rivera and Joel Grey, in an all-star review conducted by Rob Fisher.
Part of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series,
Live from Lincoln Center “Ring Them Bells! Rob Fischer Celebrates Kander and Ebb”
invites viewers to enjoy a special concert honoring the legendary
songwriting duo of John Kander and Fred Ebb, the team behind such classics as Cabaret and Chicago.
Scheduled to record live from The Allen Room on Feb. 6, the concert hits the airwaves Friday, Feb. 15th at
Fisher’s previous three composer celebrations for American Songbook – on Cole Porter, Leonard
Bernstein, and the Gershwins – were joyous explorations of the work of those composers, presented with a firm
understanding of how they fit into American musical life. Artistic Director of the Gershwin centenary (1996-1998),
founding music director and conductor of the award-winning Encores! series, Fisher works extensively on Broadway
and in concert halls across the country. Kander & Ebb’s indelible songs – with all of their brass, sass and
heart – will pulse under Fisher’s capable hands.
