Laughing Dog Media announces Broadway star and vocal powerhouse James Barbour's Fifth Annual Holiday Season at Sardi's (234 West 44th Street, New York, NY) which launches with a Pre-Thanksgiving Concert on Saturday evening, November 10th.
The concert, entitled "BRING ME GIANTS," will present the songs from Mr. Barbour's CD of the same title that is in its second printing on the GlobalVision Records Label.
Mr. Barbour's annual Holiday Concerts have become part of the entertainment landscape in Manhattan. They are sold-out events of vocal magic and audience exaltation.
This year the November 10th Concert, as well as the Annual Holiday Concerts, which are being scheduled as we speak and will run through December, will be presented on the fourth floor in the famous Eugenia Room.
The concerts begin at 8:30pm. The Eugenia Room will open at 8:00pm for champagne, drinks and Sardi's internationally appreciated desserts.
In a side note, Laughing Dog Media is currently planning a series of interviews, hosted by Mr. Barbour, which will feature noted film and theatre luminaries interviewing their peers, co-stars, directors and Academy Award winning producers.
The interview series, which will follow the Holiday Concerts, will be filmed and recorded for global television and radio audiences with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Stay tuned.
