Minnelli is one of the world's best-known entertainers, having appeared in such films as "Cabaret" and on Broadway in "Chicago." She joins a long list of notable entertainers who have performed at the Bardavon Gala — Tony Bennett and Diana Ross, among them — on a stage that has hosted Mark Twain, Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan.
Minnelli's May concert — she will be backed by a seven-piece band — will mark the first time she performs in Poughkeepsie.
"We're thrilled," said Bardavon Executive Director Chris Silva, "to have Liza at our gala this year."
