"We've sung together a few times. We've done a few concerts- usually with my brother, Eddie. We call ourselves the Cooper Clan," joked Lilli. "It's always such a joy to be able to perform with each other, so when Seth asked us to do this, I thought it was such a great opportunity to perform together again!"

What can fans expect from the concert? "I'm gonna throw out a lot of showtunes for you!" said Lilli.

"Me too. Most of [my songs] are showtunes too," added Chuck."I have one jazz standard but the rest are from musicals- shows I've done, shows I would have liked to have done..."
