Singing Her Heart Out

Christine Andreas is Westchester’s “Fair Lady” having appeared in many Broadway revivals including “My Fair Lady,” “On Your Toes” and “Oklahoma.” This Tony-awardee is bringing her  newly arranged cabaret show “Bemused” to a Westchester Community College soiree on April 17th at Tappan Hill.  It’s all about raising funds for need-based scholarships to give deserving students of any age the opportunity for a college education.

This is not the first time Christine has sung her heart out for a good cause.  I, for one, remember her stand-out performance on behalf of special needs kids for an organization dear to her heart, Ability Beyond Disability. Her “To-be-mused” playbook, she says, “is the magical spark that ignites when just the right singer and just the right songwriter(s) collide” as when Judy Garland and Harold Arlen sparked together in “Get Happy” and when Frank Sinatra, Sammy Kahn and Jimmy Van Heusen amazed us with “Tender Trap” and when Edith Piaf and Marguerite Mommot, became the first female songwriting team in France, collaborating on such memorables as  “La Vie En Rose.”

With Kenny Ascher at the piano and Dick Sarpola on bass, Andreas will sing the songs she loves to sing especially those “bemused” ones that amaze, astound, surprise and ignite. It’s all about chemistry.  For more information, call Patrick Hennessey at 914-606-6716.
