Pianist, vocalist, composer and archivist Andy Kahn brings his critically acclaimed “Music by Intention” show—a tribute to America’s greatest composers and lyricists—to the Philadelphia Ethical Society on Sunday, June 22 for a 3 p.m. show. Tickets are $25 and are available only at the door. The Ethical Society is located at 1906 Rittenhouse Square. For directions and other information, call 215-735-3456 or visit phillyethics.org.

Jazz Times magazine said it best: “Andy Kahn’s ‘Music by Intention’ program is 90 minutes of the ageless and timeless music of the great American composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Harry Warren, Johnny Mercer and the like, performed by a multi-talented pianist and singer, who is an affable and enthusiastic performer with obvious star quality. It all works.”

Kahn has been a performer and entertainment industry professional since childhood, having led and fronted everything from society orchestras to The All-Star Jazz Trio, currently in the midst of touring with the legendary songstress, Peggy King. As a composer, producer and recording artist, his 1978 recording of “Hot Shot,” sung by Karen Young, was the number one dance hit of that year. Others followed. But Andy Kahn will be happy to tell you that singing and playing the music of the great American composers of popular song is his first love.

Through instrumental music and song, and rarely heard anecdotes about the greats, “Music by Intention” enlightens, touches and above all, entertains.
