Maureen McGovern "Looking for the Light, A Spiritual Journey" World Premiere

Date

Aug 4, 2017
08:15pm – 10:30pm

Location
Hoover Auditorium

Maureen McGovern, a world-renowned artist, will sing songs of inspiration and faith for Lakesiders during the world premiere of her program "Looking for the Light, A Spiritual Journey." 

McGovern collaborated on this new project with Michael Shirtz, who serves as the producer and musical director for it.

McGovern’s nearly 45-year career has taken her from being known as “the disaster theme queen” to “the stradivarius voice," for hits such as "You Raise Me Up" and her signature song "The Morning After."

It all began with the Oscar-winning, international gold record of “The Morning After” and “We May Never Love Like This Again” from the classic disaster films, “The Poseidon Adventure” and The "Towering Inferno,” respectively. Other hits along the way have included “Can You Read My Mind” from the motion picture “Superman” and “Different Worlds” from the ABC TV series “Angie.”

Grammy-nominated for Best New Artist in 1973 and Best Traditional Pop Vocal for the The Pleasure of His Company album, McGovern was also a featured guest artist on the Grammy Award-winning Best Musical Album for Children, Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Mr. Rogers in 2005.

In 1981, she made her Broadway debut as “Mabel” in Pirates of Penzance and went on to star as “Luisa” in Nine and “Polly Peachum” in The Threepenny Opera.

She reprised her role as “Marmee” in the first national tour of Little Women and starred as “Anna” in the Broadway revival tour of The King and I.

In 2005, McGovern was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for her role as “Marmee” in Little Women, the musical on Broadway. She is currently performing her award-winning Best Solo Performance and one-woman musical memoir, Carry It On.

Her critically-acclaimed songs include tributes to Gershwin, Arlen, Rodgers, Alan and Marilyn Bergman, as well as two solo piano/vocal albums with jazz pianist Mike Renzi.

McGovern’s album, A Long and Winding Road, has been praised by the New York Times as a “captivating musical scrapbook from the 1960s to the early 1970s. Ms. McGovern’s vocal technique is second to none.”

Her newly released album, You Raise Me Up, is a spiritual journey that she recorded with her longtime pianist, arranger and composer Jeff Harris. It is the first in a series of spiritual recordings.

Shirtz serves as Lakeside Chautauqua’s Worship Music Coordinator and leads the Chautauqua Choir, members of which will participate in the concert.

Joining McGovern onstage will be Shirtz on vocals and piano, Dwight Bailey on bass and Justin Campbell on drums.
