The concert was held Saturday, February 12 at 2pm and Sunday, February 13 at 7pm at the Hoogland Center For The Arts (Theatre 3).

The second act featured some of the best loved romantic standards like "Unforgettable," "Our Love Is Here To Stay," "The Nearness Of You," "It Had To Be You" and "I've Got A Crush On You."
