She has carried a love for motion pictures, from her childhood in Soviet Russia, throughout her life. She made a record to bridge the visual and sonic expressions of the genre. Night at the Movies, is a fourteen-track collection of film music that spans a century of cinema - a love letter to dreaming — reflecting a yearning for something more, an escape from unwanted realities through imagination and optimism.
Now in concert, Night at the Movies takes listeners on a dynamic musical journey that ranges from the French New Wave and Soviet Cinema, to modern day Academy Award-winners, and animated classics.
The New York Swing Collective is an ensemble of New York jazz stars. The concert will transport the audience to the carnival of sound, seamlessly moving from sophisticated retrospection to a rowdy "exuberant, foot-stomping music combining swing and pop-singer/songwriter sensibilities!" (WPIX11TV)
