Some of the greatest songs of all time were written for the movies — and you’re going to hear the very best of those tunes in this special concert event highlighting Academy Award-Winning Best Original Songs. Our concert will take place during that sweet spot between this year’s Oscar Nominations Announcement and the Award Show, itself. Regardless of this year’s nominees, you’ll hear the great songs that were introduced by Hollywood from the time when the Best Original Song Award was first given in 1934, right up to our present era.
Hear the fascinating history of this unique Oscar category from your narrator/host, the critically acclaimed Scott Siegel, while getting wrapped up in the extraordinary performances you’ll experience by today’s most exciting Broadway and nightclub stars. Enjoy classics from the early years of the award, like “Lullaby of Broadway” (42nd Street) and “Over the Rainbow” (The Wizard of Oz) to more contemporary winners such as, “My Heart Will Go On” (Titanic) and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” (The Lion King).
The Greatest Academy Award Winning Best Original Songs is that rare combination of glittering nostalgia and sensational, show-stopping performances. It’s a concert event not to be missed.
Created, written, and hosted by NYC impresario, Scott Siegel, who has produced more than 300 major concerts that have been performed all over the world, including Town Hall’s signature series, Broadway by the Year, and concerts (produced, written, and directed) for Michael Feinstein. Scott is also the creator writer, host of Feinstein’s/54 Below’s record-breaking franchise, 54 Sings Broadway’s Greatest Hits.
