Get Happy! A Judy Garland Celebration

Michael Berkowitz, Guest Conductor

Joan Ellison, vocals

“To say ‘Joan lit up the stage’ is to use a cliché, but that’s why the phrase was coined to begin with. She did just that as she sang the Garland tunes with heartfelt spirit and a warm, vibrant sound — she is a gem! The audience fell in love at frst sight and song.”

– Eric Benjamin, Conductor and Composer



Joan Ellison and the Ashland Symphony Orchestra will be debuting some hot-off-the-press restorations of Judy’s original arrangements (thanks to the Judy Garland Heirs Trust)!
