A FAREWELL TO DORIS
A tribute to the legendary Doris Day Starring Melinda Schneider. Melinda Schneider returns to the stage in 2019 - 2020 to pay tribute to the legendary Doris Day, who died earlier this year, aged 97.
The world recently lost one of its biggest stars with the passing of Doris Day. A legend of stage, screen and song, Doris died aged 97, leaving behind an incredible body of work, including iconic movies and unforgettable songs.
Doris Day, “the girl next door”, had millions of fans around the world, none bigger than chart-topping Australian singer songwriter Melinda Schneider, who has recorded two albums of Doris’ songs, co-written and starred in a theatre show based on Doris’ life, and completed sell-out tours celebrating Doris’ work.
This nostalgic concert celebration will feature the wonderful Young At Heart Orchestra and include such timeless hits as Que Sera, Sera, Sentimental Journey, Everybody Loves a Lover and Secret Love plus classic songs from the movies Calamity Jane, Love Me or Leave Me and The Pajama Game, as well as a number of Doris’ big band standards.
Melinda is saddened by Doris’ passing, but proud to present A Farewell To Doris, knowing that Doris’ work will continue to bring joy to audiences of all ages. “Doris was multi-talented, a true triple threat: a world-class singer, dancer and actor. But it is her beautiful spirit that will stay with me. Doris was so likeable and exuded such sincerity and joy and all that is good.There will never be another like her”
“Singing her songs and telling her incredible story of resilience has been an absolute honour, and I’m happy to have the opportunity to celebrate her wonderful talent with audiences once again.”
