Symposium 30 - An Evening of Cabaret

30 April 1994

A Singer’s Life told in An Evening of Cabaret



    The Broadway Theater
    The Hollywood Musical
    Monteverdi & Schubert
    The Irish Countryside


    American tenor Robert White traces a career from childhood radio days, when he sang with such legends as Fred Allen, Beatrice Lillie, Bing Crosby, Milton Cross and Shirley Booth, to his unique concert and recording career of today that covers a vast area of song ranging from Handel to Kern, through Opera and Broadway, to the tenor’s special way with the beautiful ballads of Ireland.
