Joan Ellison (Oberlin College, The Cleveland Institute of Music and Des Moines Opera House) shines a spotlight on the musical and personal life of Judy Garland from her early years at MGM to her dramatic comeback as a concert artist and triumphant return to the big screen in A Star Is Born. It’s Saturday night, October 24th, 1953 and Jane Telling is giving her “Goodbye to Hollywood Concert.” During her sixteen years in the MGM music department, she’s seen it all, she sings it all…and she shares it all. The parade of hit tunes performed in authentic arrangements based on the originals includes “Get Happy,” “The Trolley Song,” “If You Feel Like Singing, Sing,” “Rock-a-Bye Your Baby,”, “Over the Rainbow” and many more!
