Photo Coverage: Barry Levitt 1947-2017 Pianist, Conductor, Composer, Arranger & 'Mensch'

Barry Levitt the acclaimed pianist, conductor, composer, musical director and "mensch" passed away on September 21 after suffering a massive heart attack at the Laurie Beechman Theatre on Sept 19th. His untimely death profoundly affected the music world and although a memorial to celebrate his life and enormous career will be held at a future date, the cabaret community informally flocked to the Metropolitan Room last night with expressions of sorrow and love for "The Maestro". Sharing stories and songs were just a small fraction of the performers that Barry Levitt's artistry enriched. It was an emotional evening as Bernie Furshpan pointed to the piano on stage where Barry would have been playing that very evening. Barry Levitt always hit all the right notes in life and in music.

Participating last night were: Bernie & Joanne Furshpan, Peter Napolitano, Marilyn Michaels, Adam Shapiro, Ty Stephens, Jon Burr, Minda Larsen, Charlie Romo, Bobbie Horowitz, Sara Zahn & Allen Kashkin, Warren Schein, Dora Rubin, Marcus Simeone, Joey Infante & Mike McDonald, Stephen Hanks, Dorian Woodruff, Maryann Lopinto, John McMahon, Eric Stephen Jacobs and Dawn Darrow.
