Acclaimed singer Hilary Gardner grew up in Wasilla, Alaska infatuated with New York City. Her stunning recording debut, The Great City, is part love letter, part lament to New York and the big dreams it represents. In 2010, Hilary was chosen by the Frank Sinatra estate to appear as the live, onstage singer in Tony-award winner Twyla Tharp's Come Fly Away. Backed by a 19-piece big band, Hilary sang solos and duets with Frank Sinatra in a performance hailed by critics as "wonderful" (Huffington Post), "elegant" (USA Today), and "terrific" (New York Observer). Hilary performs as a leader throughout New York City, appearing regularly at Birdland, in addition to recent performances at the Café Carlyle, Symphony Space, and Jazz at Kitano. She is a frequent soloist with symphonies throughout the United States and has appeared with Connecticut's Ridgefield Symphony, the Minnesota Orchestra, and New York's Rochester Philharmonic. Multi-platinum recording artist Moby featured Hilary prominently on his 2009 release, Wait For Me (Mute Records/EMI). Free admission. Bring your blanket or lawn chair and picnic while enjoying the entertainment. In the event of rain, the performance will be held in the Karen Hille Phillips Concert Hall on the PLU campus.
