Clouds In My Coffee: The Trailblazing Music of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon 

Tony-winning orchestrator Ted Sperling highlights three historic singer-songwriters—Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon—with new orchestral arrangements of their music in this specially curated program. Fifty years ago, these talented musicians channeled the changing roles of women into pop classics that expanded the genre and established deeply personal styles that have resonated across generations, from contemporary fans to star musicians of today who continue to cite them as inspiration. Featured songs include “Both Sides Now,” “You’ve Got a Friend,” and “You’re So Vain” among many other favorites.
