Trustee Benefit & Gala
35th Annual Trustee Benefit Concert & Gala
Dominican University's 35th Annual Trustee Benefit Concert & Gala will be held Saturday, March 14, 2015. Kicking off the event is a performance by Linda Eder at 5 p.m. in the Lund Auditorium.
Dazzling Broadway star of Jekyll & Hyde and dramatic interpreter of pop standards and show tunes, Linda Eder is one of the greatest contemporary voices of our time. She has performed for sold-out crowds at such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Davies Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Wolftrap and the Ravinia Festival, and her concerts have been televised on Bravo and PBS.
Known for her dynamic live performances, Eder's collaborators include the late Oscar-winning composer and pianist Marvin Hamlisch, Tony-winner Michael Feinstein, and Kaith Lockhart, conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra. Fifteen solo albums and a dozen musical recordings highlight Eder's abundant vocal gifts as well as her skill for delivering dramatic, emotionally resonant interpretations for familiar songs while making them her own.
The university’s signature event raises much-needed scholarship support, celebrates world-class artists, and honors those who champion the performing arts in Chicago’s metropolitan area.
