This year’s ASCAP cabaret features baritone Nathan Gunn and pianist Julie Jordan Gunn in a recital of selections from the Great American Songbook. Nathan Gunn, one of today’s most in-demand singers, has performed title roles at the world’s great opera houses, is a champion of new works, and has appeared as soloist with premier symphonies at home and abroad. Recently, he has ventured outside the standard opera repertoire, appearing in performances of Camelot with the New York Philharmonic and Showboat both at Carnegie Hall and here at Chicago’s Lyric Opera. The Gunns will present a special program illustrating the breadth and depth of American song with works ranging from the early American songs of Charles Ives, to notable classics from Cole Porter and Richard Rodgers, to the modern compositions of Tom Waits.
