New Year’s: Josh Groban Fans, Rejoice!

Yes, your favorite PBS-fundraising-week singer is getting off his lazy bum tonight to take part in “One Singular Sensation: Celebrating Marvin Hamlisch,” a special New Year’s Eve concert saluting the late composer-conductor, playing Avery Fisher Hall Dec. 31 at 7:30 PM. The concert will be telecast nationally on Live From Lincoln Center with host Audra McDonald on PBS stations beginning at 8 PM ET; check local listings. The affair has a nice lineup, including Joshua Bell, Raúl Esparza, Michael Feinstein, Kelli O’Hara, and Brian d’Arcy James, but it can’t compare in star wattage to the Hamlisch tribute at Lincoln Center four months ago, which included Barbra, Liza, and Aretha.
