Jazz Kings - "My Lucky Star" (Nacio Herb Brown & Arthur Freed)

Friday, May 19, 2017 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

M-G-M's renowned 1952 musical comedy Singin' In The Rain is one of the greatest musical films of all time for three reasons: a crack cast led by Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O'Connor; a wonderful screenplay by Betty Comden and Adolph Green; and a simply marvelous set of songs written by the film's producer, Arthur Freed, and composer Nacio Herb Brown during the 1930s, the heyday of the pair's career as a Hollywood songwriting team. Jesse Cloninger and the Jazz Kings conclude their 2016-17 season with a celebration of Arthur Freed and Nacio Herb Brown's substantial, catchy and downright fun opus. Prominent, of course, will be the gems interpolated into Singin' In The Rain -- including the title song, "Good Morning", "You Were Meant For Me", "Broadway Meldoy", "Fit As A Fiddle", "All I Do Is Dream Of You" and "You Are My Lucky Star" -- as well as other classics such as "I've Got A Feelin' You're Foolin'", "Eadie Was A Lady", "You Stepped Out Of A Dream", and "Pagan Love Call".

This concert is eligible for The Shedd's Free Shedd Jazz Student Ticket program, which makes a limited number of free tickets to 2016-17 Shedd jazz concerts available to students elementary through college.
