This past Monday, the Broadway at Birdland concert series was proud to present Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominee Melissa van der Schyff in "The Summer in Winter," an intimate concert of lush jazz standards, a few country classics and some engaging originals. Scroll down for photos!

Acclaimed Canadian jazz pianist Sharon Minemoto and virtuoso mandolin player Joe Brent were featured, as well as Tony Award Nominee Dan Jenkins (Big River, Billy Elliot, Mary Poppins, Big) and actress, choreographer and ASL Master Alexandria Wailes (Big River, Mother Courage opposite Meryl Streep, Sleeping Beauty Wakes - Ovation Nomination).

Melissa van der Schyff is a singer, actor and songwriter best known for originating the role of Blanche Barrow in the Broadway musical Bonnie & Clyde for which she garnered both Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle nominations. She made her Broadway debut as Mary Jane Wilkes in the 2003 Tony Nominated Deaf West/Roundabout revival of Big River, for which she, along with her cast mates, received The Tony Honor for Excellence in Theatre.

The Broadway at Birdland concert series takes place every Monday night at 7pm on the historic stage, located in the heart of Manhattan's Theater District.
