The Music of Harold Arlen, Wonderful Wizard of Song
Hosted by Sam Arlen
Music Director, Steve Rawlins
With Special Guests Eden Espinosa and Joseph Leo Bwarie

Legends like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald gave Harold Arlen a revered place in the Great American Songbook with their performances of his over 400 songs such as “It’s Only a Paper Moon” and “Stormy Weather.” Starting in a synagogue with his cantor father, Arlen’s musical roots extend through his jazz years at the Cotton Club in Harlem all the way to Hollywood and his Academy Award-winning song “Over the Rainbow.” Joseph Leo Bwarie (Jersey Boys, Happy Days) joins Broadway powerhouse Eden Espinoza (Wicked, Rent, and Brooklyn) along with Sam Arlen, who leads a big band tribute to his father, Harold Arlen.
