Charlap is an acclaimed master of the Great American Songbook, whose inspired reading of Bernstein includes songs from West Side Story, On The Town, Fancy Free and Wonderful Town. Joining the trio onstage is Grammy Award–winning jazz vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant, back for her third consecutive Mondavi Center season.
