Neva Small brings big talent to Ivoryton.  On Monday, August 15 from 7:00pm, Neva Small will be performing “Songs Inspired by Connecticut”.  Neva writes: 

“Have you ever thought about all of the songs inspired by Connecticut? This cabaret evening will feature familiar songs whose writers have some connection to the state.  Lorenz Hart, Richard Rogers, Jerry Bock, Irving Berlin, and many many more. The music will be brought to you by musicians who all have New England roots. Neva Small, Steve Silverstein, Dan Stein, and guest artist Daryl Sherman.”

And what a terrific line-up of artists this is:

A sparkling mainstay of Manhattan nightlife, singer/pianist Daryl Sherman is internationally acclaimed for a stellar 14-year run at the Waldorf-Astoria where she played Cole Porter’s Steinway.  In June, she headlined the annual Cole Porter Festival in his hometown – Peru, Indiana.   Sherman has performed and recorded with notables including Jay Leonhart, Bucky & John Pizzarelli, Warren Vache, Harry Allen, Dick Hyman, Dave McKenna, Ruby Braff, Houston Person, Bob Dorough, Wycliffe Gordon, Dan Barrett, Howard Alden, Gene Bertoncini, Ken Peplowski, Kenny Davern, John Bunch, Mike Renzi, James Chirillo and Boots Maleson.

Steven Silverstein has worked as a music director, pianist, vocal coach, composer in the U.S. and Europe.  Steven works regularly with Broadway veterans including John Treacy Egan and Neva Small; and TV celebrities such as Martha Stewart, John Stamos, Dark Shadows’ Nancy Barrett and the cast of Will and Grace (Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack, Megan Mullally and Harry Connick, Jr.).

Bassist/Guitarist Daniel Stein is a recent graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory, where he was a student of Peter Dominguez. A native New Yorker, he has studied with Paul Gill and Victor Lin in Manhattan, with Todd Coolman at the Skidmore Jazz Institute, and with Jeff Campbell at the Eastman School of Music Summer Jazz program. Noteworthy classical performances include Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 at Carnegie Hall with the National Festival Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Zander, and Schubert’s Trout Quintet with Arts Ahimsa in New York.
