The PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW concert series was born of a desire to celebrate new composing artists, and explore the fundamental links that help make them part of the new "Great American Songbook." Each version of the concert series combines the songs of three featured writers along with the familiar songs and composers that have been influential to their work. Each version may include, not only the songs by these writers and their influences, but also original "mash-ups," and medleys. Past concerts have included the works by and influences of Jonathan Reid Gealt, Robert Rokicki, Adam Gwon, Paul Loesel and Scott Burkell, Ryan Scott Oliver, Georgia Stitt, Mark Petty and Barry Anderson, Jeff Blumenkrantz, and Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond.
PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW 4.0 will be presented on Monday, February 18 at 7pm and Monday, February 25 at 7:00pm at Stage 72 at the Triad (158 West 72nd Street, 2nd Floor - between Amsterdam & Columbus, on the Upper West Side).
