Marilyn Maye to Make 92Y Solo Concert Debut, 6/17
After numerous appearances at Lyrics & Lyricists and Jazz in July, the indefatigable Marilyn Maye returns for her 92Y solo concert debut on Tuesday, June 17 for the annual Kathryn W. Stein Memorial Concert.
A musical legend for half a century, Ms. Maye holds the singer's record of 76 appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. In the mid-2000s she was "rediscovered" when she appeared at the renowned Rose Hall at Lincoln Center. In March 2013 she made a triumphant debut at Broadway's nightclub, 54 Below, returning again in the fall. She will be joined by her trio for a signature program of Broadway and jazz standards.
About Kathryn W. Stein and the 92Y Himan Brown Senior Program: This concert is made possible by a bequest from Kathryn W. Stein. A longtime member of the 92Y Himan Brown Senior Program (then known as "60+") and a lifelong patron of the arts, Miss Stein was born in New York City in 1906 to a life of wealth and privilege. Her grandfather owned the largest steam ship company on Lake Michigan, and her father was the US partner in the Patek Phillippe Watch Company. Yet both her parents instilled in her a deep commitment to service, and after attending Vassar College, Miss Stein spent her life involved in many charitable auses and contributing to dozens of organizations.
At her death, Miss Stein made several significant bequests to favorite organizations, including the American Red Cross of New York, the Southern Poverty Law Center and 92Y. Since she was particularly passionate about music, her generous legacy to 92Y supports this annual concert and extensive music programming for seniors. She is fondly remembered by those who knew her for elegance, dry wit and love of people.
With a vibrant membership of nearly 700, the 92Y Himan Brown Senior Program offers a wide variety of classes, activities and special events to active men and women over 60. Under the directorship of Jo Frances Brown since 1996, the program has courses in such areas as art, music, dance, literature, language, world events, digital photography, computers and physical education, as well as discussion groups and holiday celebrations.
Excursions to points of interest in and around New York, social action, theater opportunities, intergenerational programming and volunteer opportunities are all part of membership benefits. Members also receive discounted tickets to 92Y lectures, readings and concerts.
