THE EMANUEL SERIES
Presenting The DONNA LEVIEN MEMORIAL PRESENTATION IN MUSIC —
Love Will Keep Us Together
Scott Coulter & Co. in "The Music of the Brill Building "
June 8, 2014 at 3:00pm
The Emanuel Series concludes the 2013/14 season with The Donna Levien Memorial Presentation in Music, “Love Will Keep Us Together”—The Music of the Brill Building, on Sunday, June 8th at 3:00 p.m.
In the heart of NYC’s Times Square sits the Brill Building, 1619 Broadway. The music of America in the 50s and 60s, considered by many to be some of the greatest music ever written, emanated from its halls and offices when the Brill Building was home to Carole King, Neil Sedaka, Lieber & Stoller, Neil Diamond, and Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, among others. The songs they wrote: Breaking Up Is Hard To Do, Where the Boys Are, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’ and On Broadway, all came from the famed music factory. The writers continued to climb the charts decades after their Brill days, but it was the building that brought them all together. Award-winning Scott Coulter and a company of three vocalists will take you through the music and the stories of the singers and the songs that defined a generation.
Scott Coulter has received five MAC Awards (Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs), five Bistro Awards and two Nightlife Awards for Outstanding Vocalist; he has performed at most of NYC's top rooms including Birdland, The Oak Room at the Algonquin, and Feinstein's at The Regency.
Temple Emanuel of Great Neck is located at 150 Hicks Lane.
Admission is $15/person or $25/couple.
This lecture is part of The Emanuel Series, Cultural Arts for the 21st Century.
