Scheidegger Center to Welcome Back Singer Debby Boone

April 11, 2011

Lindenwood’s J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts will welcome back famed singer Debby Boone to the stage of The Bezemes Family Theater for a live musical concert at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 7.

Seating for the concert is assigned and tickets are available for $24.50-$42.50 at the Lindenwood Box Office (636-949-4433) or online at The Box Office and The Bezemes Family Theater are located in Lindenwood’s J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts, at 2300 West Clay St., just west of First Capitol Drive in St. Charles.

Boone earned instant fame in 1977 when the song “You Light Up My Life” became an overnight hit. The tune, which outranked even The Beatles by claiming the number-1 spot on the Billboard charts for ten straight weeks, sold in excess of 4 million copies; the album went double platinum with sales in excess of 2 million. The song went on to win an Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture, and Boone received the Grammy Award for Best New Artist of the Year.

“Reflections of Rosemary” is an intimate musical portrait of Boone’s late mother-in-law, the legendary singer Rosemary Clooney (as seen in the classic motion picture White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye). The performance is a deeply heartfelt tribute to the unforgettable Clooney, a woman for whom Boone had great love and respect.

“I wanted to select songs that would give an insight into Rosemary from a family perspective, and from the more than 30 years that I spent with her,” says Boone.

Boone performed in March 2010 on the stage of The Bezemes Family Theater during the filming of PBS’s national television special, Marvin Hamlisch Presents: The ‘70s, The Way We Were.

For more information about the concert, contact the Lindenwood Box Office at 636-949-4433.
