An Evening with Melissa Manchester

What better way to celebrate spring than “Through the Eyes of Love”? Melissa Manchester’s Grammy-nominated hit is just a hint of a 45-year career that began as a back-up singer for Bette Midler and grew into a spectacular songbook spanning 20 studio albums. Manchester comes to the American to perform a collection of favorite songs in her unique way, with beautiful phrasing and a rich, earthy tone that’s been her signature sound since the singer-songwriter’s early days in New York City.

Manchester eventually won that Grammy in 1982 for “You Should Hear How She Talks About You” and over the years has entertained dedicated fans across the country. Musical icons such as Barbra Streisand and Roberta Flack have recorded her songs, while Manchester herself has paid tribute to the artists who have influenced her over the years, from Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett to Carly Simon and Edith Piaf. Don’t miss this chance for Manchester to warm your heart with her favorite songs and distinctive arrangements.

“Manchester’s rugged, chesty voice is as formidable as ever.” The New York Times
