This multi-media tribute Mancini will feature his daughter, vocalist Monica Mancini, singing her fathers hits. The program includes clips from some of Mancinis greatest movies plus rare behind-the-scenes video, as well as Mancinis award-winning instrumental music performed by the Henry Mancini Institute Alumni Orchestra.
Nominated for an unequalled 72 Grammy Awards and the winner of 20 of those, Henry Mancini is undoubtedly one of Americas greatest composers.

She will sing her fathers most beautiful songs as well as her other favorite classic movie themes.
