Performer Phoebe Madden loves New York City and loves the Greenwich Odeum so her latest show, “A Night in the City,” is a way to celebrate both.
The performance at the Odeum Saturday, Nov. 1, brings together Madden, fellow singer Michael DiMucci, and musicians Ritchee Price and David Marshall for an evening of popular Broadway, pop and jazz, even a little opera.
“The show is revisiting my past, working as a musician in New York City. There will be a really exciting array of music,” Madden said in a recent interview. “Our whole purpose as a team is to integrate the various music styles that we have and celebrate that collaboration. We each have our own training but we find it exciting to come together.”
Madden grew up in the New York City area and has been performing since she was a girl, including several years working on Broadway before relocating to Rhode Island to raise a family. Still, her love of performing endures.
“There are a lot of talented people in Rhode Island and it’s been a great joy to explore this state,” she said. “I sing more here than I thought I would and I’m very thankful.”
DiMucci, a tenor based in Bristol, performed with Madden at Summer’s End, in what she refers to as a “preview” of the Nov. 1 show. Marshall plays sax and keyboard, and saxophonist Price’s career included gigs with both the Lionel Hampton and Count Basie orchestras.
“This is really the next step in building our teamwork,” said Madden. “It’s going to be an exciting night!”
