Vicki Brabham, director
The Heart and Soul of Frank Loesser
Thu Aug 2, 1:30-3:00 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
The Eye Center
Over the years, Frank Loesser (1910-69) has become a favorite at The Shedd. The prolific, masterful composer/lyricist, of course, wrote the scores for some of the greatest stage and film musicals of the songbook era including Guys And Dolls, How To Succeed In Business…, Where's Charley, and Hans Christian Anderson, as well as a solid corpus of timeless songs like "Heart And Soul", "I Don’t Want To Walk Without You", and "Baby, It's Cold Outside".
The Heart & Soul of Frank Loesser
is one of 4 OFAM 2018 concerts presented twice:
    Matinee: Thu, Aug 2 - 1:30 pm
    Evening: Sat, Aug 11 - 8;00 pm
We've produced several of the musicals, drawn on the songs for many concert projects, and have dedicated entire shows to the man for over 20 years. But we keep feeling we've just scratched the surface, and Vicki Brabham keeps finding lesser-known Loesser songs (try saying THAT 10 times fast!) that are absolutely wonderful. So she proposes to share a new batch of them at OFAM 2018 with this special tribute, The Heart And Soul of Frank Loesser — a choice selection of famous and lesser-so, all great, all classic Loesser.
