Broadway Legend Liz Callaway Kicks off UT’s PNC Bank Concert Artist Series Oct. 2
On Sunday, Oct. 2, The University of Tampa will welcome Broadway legend Liz Callaway, who will perform songs from her starring roles on Broadway and in her film career as part of the PNC Bank Concert Artist Series in the Sykes Chapel and Center for Faith and Values. The concert will begin at 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Callaway made her Broadway debut in Stephen Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along, received a Tony Award nomination for her performance in Baby and for five years won acclaim as Grizabella in Cats.
She was the singing voice of Anya in the animated film Anastasia, performing the Academy Award–nominated song “Journey to the Past,” and was also the singing voice of Princess Jasmine in Disney’s Aladdin and the King of Thieves and Return of Jafar. She received an Emmy Award for hosting Ready to Go, a daily, live children’s program on CBS in Boston.
Callaway has released five solo recordings, including Passage of Time, The Beat Goes On, The Story Goes On: Liz Callaway On and Off-Broadway, Anywhere I Wander: Liz Callaway Sings Frank Loesser and Merry and Bright, her new Christmas album.
At UT, Callaway will perform some of her favorite songs from her starring roles on Broadway and in her film career as well as works from Rogers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, George Gershwin, Stephen Schwartz, Ahrens and Flaherty, and more.
She will also conduct a master class for UT musical theatre students during her visit.
The concert is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. Doors will open 30 minutes before the performance. Parking is available on campus.
