Enjoy an evening with the great Cole Porter as pianist John Brighenti and vocalist Gail Lumpkin entertain you with selections, commentary and anecdotes from his work.

He has performed for orchestras, lounge groups, jazz ensembles and vocalists throughout the U.S. and has toured with numerous well known orchestras.
