Women Composers Festival: Dorothy Fields Cabaret
Women Composers Festival
About Dorothy Fields
Dorothy Fields (1905-1974) remains one of the most enduring and frequently performed American songwriters. Inserting herself into a male dominated profession, she brought a woman's perspective to the art of songwriting with splendid humor and an unmatched talent for the timeless lyric. Throughout a nearly five decade career she worked with industry giants Jerome Kern, Cy Coleman, Jimmy McHugh, Arthur Schwartz, Sigmund Romberg, Harold Arlen and others. Her work spans Tin Pan Alley, to Broadway, to Hollywood and back again and picking up Tony Awards and Oscars along the way.
Join the enchanting Jennifer Timberlake and pianist Reenie Codelka for a cabaret evening of songs and stories from Fields' career featuring hits like: "The Way You Look Tonight," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "On the Sunny Side of the Street," "A Fine Romance," "If My Friends Could See Me Now," and others.
