ticket prices:
Debby Boone earned instant fame in 1977
when “You Light Up My Life” became an
overnight hit. Boone’s striking vocal talents
will be on full display when she takes the Orr
stage in an intimate musical tribute to her late
mother-in-law, the legendary singer Rosemary
Clooney. “I selected several songs that I feel
create a musical portrait of Rosemary,” says
Boone. Though some songs—“Blue Skies,”
“Mood Indigo,” “Time After Time,” “In the Wee
Small Hours of the Morning”—were either
recorded or often performed onstage by the
“Girl Singer,” Boone included other tunes for
more personal and intimate family reasons.
For Boone, Reflections of Rosemary is more
than just a performance; it is a deeply heartfelt and emotional tribute to a woman for
whom she had great love and respect.
