Ms. Winer said: "We never expected how much fantastic, joyful energy and excitement met our launch of Songbook Sundays. With Cole Porter...and who can get ever enough of Cole Porter?... we're continuing the party with this mid-July cocktail shaker of Porter's greatest songs, superb star vocalists and instrumentalists with a couple of young emerging artists, the enthusiasm of the audience (including welcoming families), and Dizzy's gorgeous surroundings. I can't think of a happier place to be!"

Host Deborah Grace Winer will interweave breezy chat and stories about Cole Porter and the songs we will be hearing.
