Tony-winning orchestrator Ted Sperling highlights three historic singer-songwriters—Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon—with new orchestral arrangements of their music in this specially curated program with Broadway performers Morgan James, Capathia Jenkins, and Andréa Burns.

Fifty years ago, these talented musicians channeled the changing roles of women into pop classics that expanded the genre and established deeply personal styles that have resonated across generations. Featured songs include “Both Sides Now,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” and “You’re So Vain” among many other favorites.
