American Icons: Judy Garland & Friends 
on Saturday, August 13 at the LA CountyArboretum. The program will celebrate

stories as Melissa Manchester, Nicole Henry

as “Big Spender,” “Cabaret,” “Come Rain or 
Come Shine,” “Lady Be Good,” “Lover,” “The 
Trolley Song,” the original film arrangement 
for “Over The Rainbow” and so much more.

 “Even though I never met Judy Garland, Iknow her family very well and they have 
made available her entire library of her 
arrangements,” Feinstein said. “Some of 
these have never been played publicly before, 
or were only heard once on her TV show. 
Speaking of Garland’s family, we will have a 
special tribute to Judy’s beloved daughter and 
my close friend for decades, Liza Minnelli. 
Liza has generously loaned us some of her 
personal orchestrations as well to pay tribute 
to her, so it’s going to be quite a show.”

 To musically celebrate the legacies of these 
women, Feinstein welcomes three soloists 
to the stage including icon, Grammy Award 
Winner, singer and songwriter, Melissa 
Manchester, whose hits include, “Don’t CryOut Loud”, “You Should Hear How She Talks 
About You”, “Midnight Blue” and “Just Too 
Many People”. Manchester will be singing 
selections from her album Legends, where 
she pays tribute to Judy Garland, PeggyLee and Doris Day, as well as songs from 
her own collection like “Come in from the 
Rain”. Manchester will share the stage with 

two generations of icons-in-the-making 
with Award-winning Jazz performer, Nicole 
Henry and Songbook Youth Ambassador and 
Hairspray Live’s Maddie Baillio.

 Grammy Award winner Doris Day, who like 
Peggy Lee, began her career as a Big Band 
singer, brought great music to film including 
the timeless, Academy Award Winner, “Que 
Sera Sera”. Lee’s “Fever” has influenced 
generation after generation since its 1940 
debut including thousands of covers and
