NYC: BROADWAY'S DAVID BAIDA WINS METROSTAR CONTEST
2016 FINALE ANNOINTS SCHERL & LEONHARD RUNNER UPS

David Baida was announced as the next MetroStar on Monday, August 22nd at THE METROPOLITAN ROOM (34 West 22nd Street, NYC - 212-206-0440). Baida, who plays an array of character roles as an ensemble member of Broadway's "On Your Feet," showed how he was well deserving ot this win. The Southern California native told the story of how he had come this close to giving up on an acting career before getting the call to join the cast of "On Your Feet." To win the very evenly matched finals featuring three men and two women, Baida had to beat out empty-nester Wendy Scherl (the 1st runner up) and songstress April Leonhard (the 2nd runner up). Grabbing the Special Audience award was song and dance man Stanley Martin ("Aladdin" on Broadway). Samuel McDonald rounded out the Top Five. Baida will develop a new show for the Metropolitan Room as part of his prize for winning. Leonhard, who played four instruments including trombone, guitar, yukelele and kazoo in the course of the 7-week competition, and Scherl, a Ridgefield CT mom who let her hair down every week to reveal a soaring lazer sharp alto, will open for Baida when he premieres his new show. MetroStar, a contest that challenges singers to raise their standards and push themselves artistically, got underway on July 11th and performed on seven consecutive Mondays. Since it began in 2008, MetroStar has launched and redefined the careers of several standouts in cabaret and jazz. Past winners, in chronological order have included Anne Steele, Liz Lark Brown, T. Oliver Reid, Marissa Mulder, Billie Roe, Lauren Stanford, Kristoffer Lowe, and Minda Larsen, the 2015 MetroStar.

It's a pop-contemporary spin on several well known standards, combined with new songs, a mix of jazz, pop, and theatre, that intelligently explore the human condition and strike a universal chord. On this CD, three songs were written expressly for Raissa - two by Michael John LaChiusa: "Torch Song for Raissa" and "Bye, Bye, Ingenue", and onw by David Caldwell: "i carry your heart". Two other songs received their first commercial recording here: Ron Abel and Chuck Steffan's "Waiting for a Westbound Train," and "How Could I Not?" is from the David Spencer/cAlan Menken musical, THE APPRENTICESHIP OF DUDDY KRAVITZ. On Broadway: Raissa was "Christine Daae" in PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, and performed in CHESS, as a benefit for the Actor's Fund. First National Tours: "Jellylorum/Griddlebone" and "Jennyanydots" in CATS, and as "Lizzie Phagan" in PARADE, where she worked with the original creative team of director Harold Prince, choreographer Patricia Birch, author Alfred Uhry, and composer Jason Robert Brown.

NYC: THE MABEL MERCER FOUNDATION LAUNCHES ITS FOURTH DECADE OF SONG & SPLENDOR AS SEVENTY DIVERSE PERFORMERS HERALD SONDHEIM, STROUSE, HARNICK, SYMS, ET AL - OCTOBER 18-21
FEATURED CABARET ORGANIZATION EVENT

The Cabaret Convention of THE MABEL MERCER FOUNDATION will take place October 18th through 21st at ROSE THEATER AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER (Columbus Circle, Broadway at 60th Street, NYC). The event has become a much anticipated, much acclaimed annual highlight of New York's autumn music season. This year, however, the four-performance concert series observes two especially noteworthy achievements. In addition to celebrating its twenty-seventh convention presentation, the Foundation simultaneously heralds the onset of its fourth decade of operation. Against wildly fluctuating public preferences in music, entertainment, and entertainers, The Mabel Mercer Foundation now has endured for more than thirty years and flourished in its absolute commitment to the classic, "Great Popular Songbook," past, present and future. Commemorating that achievement, the 2016 Cabaret Convention presents four different music programs. More than seventy singers are scheduled to appear, and the productions include specific tributes to the songs of Stephen Sondheim, the lyrics of Sheldon Harnick, the melodies of Charles Strouse, and the repertoire of legendary jazz artist Sylvia Syms. Each evening boasts its own host(s), and the preeminent emcees include Klea Blackhurst, Jeff Harnar, Andrea Marcovicci, Rex Reed, and KT Sullivan; the latter also is the artistic director of The Mabel Mercer Foundation. Presale advance tickets now are available ONLY through The Mabel Mercer Foundation: 212-980-3026 or info@mabelmercer.org . Prices are $100, $50, and $25, and Premium Patron Seating is also available @ $500 ($350 of which is tax-deductible). Those holding Patron Seating tickets are invited to a post-show cocktail reception with the evening's artists; Patron Seating is limited to fifty seats per performance.
