Lincoln Center’s acclaimed series American Songbook returns in January for its eleventh season celebrating the diversity of American popular song. For 17 nights of pop, folk, cabaret, R&B, country, rock, show tunes, bluegrass and multimedia, the series will explore the best of the golden age of musical standards through to today’s most dynamic contemporary songwriting. The 2009 season – January 14 through March 6 – will bring to the stage some of today’s most gifted interpreters of song, including top vocalist Kurt Elling and country’s winning Patty Loveless. It will feature the rare opportunity to hear the electrifying Paulo Szot, star of Broadway’s South Pacific, and film and stage star Alan Cumming, in intimate concert settings. Two of the immortals in the canon of American composers – Cole Porter and Richard Rodgers – will be celebrated, respectively, by Rob Fisher and John Pizzarelli. Current Broadway and film composer Alan Menken will perform songs he has written for films and stage productions, and contemporary composer/arranger/wunderkind Nico Muhly will bring his pop collaborations to the Songbook stage. Tony-winner Stew (Passing Strange) will close the season with a concert at the new Alice Tully Hall.
