The 44th Annual Kennedy Center Honors

I had the privilege of preparing the music for many of the presenters and performers for the 44th Kennedy Center Honors, under the direction of the wonderful Diane Louie. 

This year's broadcast celebrated lifetime artistic achievements of stage and screen star Bette Midler, most recently on Broadway in a Tony-winning turn as Dolly Gallagher Levi in the revival of Hello, Dolly!; operatic bass-baritone Justino Díaz; Motown founder, songwriter, producer, and director Berry Gordy; Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels; and singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell.
