Can’t Help Singing – Hollywood’s Leading Ladies in Concert
Kim Criswell vocalist
John Wilson conductor
During the golden age of the film musical, they arrived in Hollywood by the hundreds — beautiful young women, armed with only their talents and an overwhelming desire to see their faces on a cinema screen. Tonight we celebrate the few who achieved that goal, from Judy Garland, Lena Horne, Alice Faye, and Jeanette MacDonald to Julie Andrews, Shirley Jones, and Barbra Streisand. Songs including I’m the Greatest Star, Dear Mr. Gable (You Made Me Love You), But the World Goes ‘Round, You’ll Never Know, The Sound of Music, and San Francisco, all painstakingly restored to their original film orchestrations by John Wilson, are sung by Kim Criswell as a tribute to those extraordinary women.
