"Watching my friend, Rick McKay
;'s documentary on PBS entitled 'Broadway: The Golden Age,' I sat in awe at all the Lost Treasures that are a part of our musical theater history. Sure, all these songs and performances are treasures we mustn't lose; however, I love discovering new songs. Having presented the 'Songbooks' for the past 15 years, I have had ample opportunity to present free monthly concerts -displaying the talents of new up and coming writers," writes Znidarsic.
Admission to the concert is free on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 212-265-3495 - ext. 336.
