This enchanting concert celebrates the most beloved musical moments of the Film and Broadway career of Julie Andrews. Vocalist Diane Penning brings the spirit of this beloved actress/singer to stage with songs from timeless productions including The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, My Fair Lady, Camelot, and Cinderella. Add Conductor Paul Langford’s silky tenor for solos and romantic duets and you’ve got a recipe for a “Supercalifragilistic” evening of music!”
