International cabaret artist Steve Ross will bring his sophisticated touch, sense of humor and heartfelt ballads to Whidbey Island on July 21-22 as part of Saratoga Orchestra’s Festival of American Song.

On July 21, Ross will appear as part of Saratoga Orchestra’s Summer Soirée Gala.

On July 22, Ross will host a master class beginning at 10:30 a.m. at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. Several local singers will perform and explore the “Art of Storytelling through Song.”

At 7 p.m. July 22, Ross will perform his solo cabaret at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. As a major proponent of the Great American Songbook, he will offer an eclectic program consisting of songs by the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Noël Coward and others.

Tickets for the evening performance are available at wicaonline.org.

For more than 15 years, Ross held court at the legendary Oak Room at Manhattan’s famed Hotel Algonquin and has appeared on Broadway in Noël Coward’s “Present Laughter” and off-Broadway in his tribute to Fred Astaire entitled, “I Won’t Dance.”
