The Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs is proud to announce a new annual show to be held each fall, called MAC presents THEY WRITE THE SONGS. The inaugural show will be held Sunday, November 18th at 4pm at Baruch College's Engelman Recital Hall (Lexington Avenue at 25th Street).
Each year, this show will present the work of selected songwriters, highlighting both those who are well-established, as well as those who are on the rise. Songs written by these outstanding songwriters will be performed throughout the show by singers who have previously either won or been nominated for MAC Awards, or in some cases, by the songwriters themselves.
The songwriters selected for the inaugural show of this new annual series are Jeff Blumenkrantz, Barry Kleinbort, Johnny Rodgers, Mary Liz McNamara, Nate Buccieri and Scott Evan Davis. The host for the evening will be Grammy award winning songwriter Julie Gold. Nate Bucchieri will be the musical director. Performers will be announced shortly.
In addition, at this show MAC will announce this year's recipients of the two annual songwriting awards bestowed by MAC each year – the Dottie Burman award, and the John Wallowitch award. Songs written by these recipients will also be performed at the show.
The evening will culminate with an interview of songwriter Jeff Blumenkrantz conducted by Grammy award winner and host Julie Gold, and a performance of songs written by Jeff.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 day of show. There will be a reception with the songwriters immediately following the performance at 6pm at no additional charge for MAC members, and $10 for non-members.
