September 27, Juilliard presented a public master class with Tony-award winning singer Barbara Cook and her longtime accompanist and music arranger, Wally Harper. Selected students from the Drama Division and Vocal Arts Department participated, among them actors Lauren Lovett and Matt McCormick, and voice majors Matthew Chellis, James Martin, and Nancy Allen Lundy. The students performed “How Deep Is The Ocean” by Irving Berlin, “There But for You Go I” from Brigadoon by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, “Memories of You” from Blackbirds of 1930 by Eubie Blake and Andy Razaf, “Anyone Can Whistle” from Stephen Sondheim’s musical of the same title, and “Mira (Can You Imagine That?)” from Carnival by Bob Merrill. Cook’s master class coincided with her appearance at the Café Carlyle from September 14 to October 30; participants were invited to perform with her at Juilliard Night at the Carlyle.
