Impromptu Concert Series was started in 2019 by Eddy Isenberg and Ethan Rotenberg to provide a platform for performers to showcase their vocal abilities while respecting their time commitment to a project.
All Impromptu Concerts feature non-union entertainers working under a low-commitment rehearsal process. After selecting a musical focus, we audition and cast quickly. Then, in a matter of weeks, the singers mount a concert that is somewhat, well, impromptu.
Enjoy our concerts, and we look forward to you being a regular part of our audience!
Impromptu Concert Series is pleased to present BROADWAY – The Early Years! an exploration of the music that inspired and formed Broadway’s golden age. Accompanied by just a grand piano, the singers will make their mark on a series of songs that once resonated as the popular music of its day. Join us for an intimate and engaging evening of infectious tunes!
