A cheerfully random and delightfully chaotic evening tonight at the Academy of Holy Names – what could be more appropriate, after all, than for a Jewish boy to do a concert on Rosh Hashanah in a Catholic girls’ school?

Thanks to Lisa Franklin, who brought me up from New York to work with 23 of her amazing students and then asked me to share an hour of my music with them and their families and some other groovy Albany cats.

It All Fades Away
I Could Be In Love With Someone Like You
I Love Betsy (from Honeymoon In Vegas)
King of the World (from Songs for a New World)
Nothing In Common
The Old Red Hills of Home (from Parade)
Wondering (from The Bridges of Madison County)
All Things In Time
Caravan of Angels
A Little More Homework (from 13)
[for which I invited up all the kids in the audience who had ever performed in a production of 13 as well as anyone else who knew the song – and about thirty people ended up on stage with me, belting up “Day turns to day”!]
Someone To Fall Back On

A lovely, laid-back night in Albany. Off to Elon, NC tomorrow!
