The DeKalb Symphony Orchestra will be performing our Summer Pops Concert on Friday, July 17, 2015. This concert will feature Atlanta’s well-known cabaret performer Libby Whittemore and the Robert Strickland Trio performing both solo and with the DSO.
During the 1980’s, Ms. Whittemore originated the role of Connie Sue Day in the musical theatre phenomenon called “Della’s Diner.” She went on to perform in feature films and television including “I’ll Fly Away,” “In the Heat of the Night,” “Profiler” and “The Price of a Broken Heart” to name a few.
From 2000-2006 Ms. Whittemore went on perform at her own night club called “Libby’s – A Cabaret.” It was also during this time that she was able to perform in New York City at the famed Town Hall. In 2007, Ms. Whittemore began a relationship with Actors Express Theatre creating “Libby’s At The Express” in which she produces and co-stars in three cabaret shows a year.
Some of the pieces to be performed at the Pops Concert include “An American in Paris,” Anderson’s “Promenade” and “Danse Bacchanale” by Saint-Saens.
