(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Jazz-pop vocalist Ann Hampton Callaway brings her cabaret show, “Celebrating The Great American Songbook,” to Club Helsinki Hudson on Sunday, July 7, at 7pm, as part of the Helsinki on Broadway series presented in association with Showstoppers. Returning to Club Helsinki by popular demand, Callaway presents the best of Gershwin, Porter, Rodgers, Arlen, Berlin and Kern. From “All The Things You Are” to “How Deep is The Ocean” to “Blues in the Night,” with insightful anecdotes about each tune, Tony Award-nominated Callaway takes the audience on a journey of romance, passion, humor and simply great music.
