From the vaudeville houses of central Minnesota to the silver screen and Carnegie Hall, Judy Garland's legacy continues on. Join Broadway soprano Andrea Ross and the Lakes Area Music Festival for a tribute concert of her classics, and our favorites, opening the 2021/22 LAMF Winter Series. Enjoy the classics that Garland was known for, including Embraceable You, You Made Me Love You, and – of course – Somewhere Over the Rainbow. The Joint is Really Jumping… at the Gichi-ziibi Center for the Arts!
Ms. Ross began her career in her hometown of Boston, where she was the youngest recipient of the prestigious Elliot Norton Award for Outstanding Actress. She caught the attention of legendary Broadway composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber, who became her mentor and took Ms. Ross under his wing. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Universal Music Group: Classics and Jazz, produced Andrea’s solo album, Moon River, which debuted on the Top 50 UK Charts. Andrea performed as ‘Maria' in the Broadway Tour of Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music and has been a featured soloist with top symphony orchestras including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Utah Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, and KBS Symphony Orchestra in Seoul, South Korea.
We look forward to welcoming you to our concerts! After our experience this past summer, LAMF plans to proceed with a Winter Series, adopting emerging industry standards for concert protocols. These precautions include:
- Showing proof of vaccination card, or negative COVID test upon entry to any venue (testing available onsite)
- Mask requirement for audience for the duration of the performance
- Audience capacity limited to 50%, with room for social distance seating
- More information and details about these and other precautions are available at our COVID protocols page.
All LAMF musicians have been vaccinated and will be tested for COVID-19 prior to rehearsals and on the day of the performance; as a result, they may perform without masks.
This concert is sponsored in part by Lemieux Wealth Strategies.
