Only one thing need be said about the singing of Hilary Gardner and it has already been written by Stephen Holden of the New York Times "...an uninhibited answer to the young Doris Day."  Her repertoire takes you back to the old standards of the Golden Age of Broadway and forward to the new and edgy sounds of American music in the 21st century. But there is a freshness to her delivery that makes people breathe just a bit harder. She brings with her Israeli pianist Ehmud Asherie, who will make magic on our Mason & Hamlin grand piano. New York critics like him too, calling him “a master of swing and stride,” The New Yorker. The late afternoon of August 13 will be a classy time in our mansion. Why would you want to be anywhere else?
