Donna Baily will be joined by Mike Tomaro on sax, Joe DeFazio on keyboards, Jason Hollar on bass and Gordon Grottenthaler on percussion. They will perform songs from the Great American Songbook, the popular canon and some of Bailey's original compositions -- songs beautifully showcased by the Music Hall's acoustics and ambiance. The date is Friday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets to Donna Bailey & Friends are $15 in advance (through May 3); $20 at the door. They are available at www.carnegiecarnegie.org/ticketing or call 800-838-3006, x. 1. A reception in the Studio follows the performance. Beverages are available by donation. Free Shuttle Service is available from the parking lot on Main Street, opposite Carnegie Coffee Company.

On a slightly bittersweet note, the evening will be a swansong for Music Hall Manager Suzie Sparks. As she winds down her tenure at the ACFL&MH she will share some of her wonderful and whimsical and original art, appropriately debuting the Studio as professional gallery space.
