Carly Simon: A Moonlight Serenade on the Queen Mary 2 Airs Nationwide on PBS Starting December 1 Historic Transatlantic Concert to Air on More Than 100 TV Stations, Featuring

Pop Music Legend Performing Romantic Standards and Treasured Hits on Iconic

Ocean Liner



    VALENCIA, Calif., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Pop music legend Carly Simon
 meets legendary ocean liner Queen Mary 2 during the much anticipated broadcast
 of Carly Simon: A Moonlight Serenade on the Queen Mary 2, airing nationwide on
 more than 100 PBS stations starting December 1.  Simon's historic performance
 was recorded in QM2's Queens Room, the largest ballroom at sea, and marks the
 first time that a television special was taped during a transatlantic
 crossing.
     The 90-minute program showcases Simon's inspired renditions of romantic
 standards from her chart-topping album, Moonlight Serenade, as well as some of
 her most-loved greatest hits, and includes behind-the-scenes footage of the
 renowned singer exploring the elegant surroundings of the grandest passenger
 liner ever built.  The full concert DVD on Columbia Records goes on sale today
 and was directed by veteran concert filmographer Jim Gable who has worked with
 other such music icons as Sting, the Rolling Stones and Cyndi Lauper.
     Queen Mary 2's sumptuous interiors provided the perfect setting for the
 sublime music of Carly Simon, and viewers will be treated to an inside view of
 the ship as Simon makes her glamorous entrance into the Grand Lobby; rehearses
 in the Queens Room; visits the master of Queen Mary 2, Commodore Ronald
 Warwick, on the ship's Bridge; and goes shopping in the boutique, among other
 scenes.
     Simon had a very clear vision of the concert that would complement the CD
 of Moonlight Serenade.  Having sailed many transatlantic ocean voyages,
 including on QE2, there was no question in her mind that Queen Mary 2's
 ballroom was the perfect venue.
     "We were delighted to have hosted legendary artist Carly Simon aboard
 Queen Mary 2 for this very special concert," says Carol Marlow, president and
 managing director of Cunard Line.  "QM2's renowned Queens Room was the perfect
 setting for her distinctive interpretation of several timeless standards."
     Simon croons with her signature sensual vocal stylings to cherished
 romantic ballads penned by such songwriting legends as Glenn Miller, Cole
 Porter, Rodgers and Hart, and the Gershwins.  Ballroom dancers dressed to the
 nines add a timeless ambiance as they glide effortlessly across the floor
 during these song selections.
     Simon also taped a private acoustic set in an intimate corner of the
 Commodore Club, one of the ship's most elegant cocktail lounges, and was
 joined by her daughter, Sally Taylor, as well as two of her other favorite
 back-up singers.
     Cunard has an illustrious history of hosting royalty, society luminaries
 and famed entertainers with peerless cachet on transatlantic crossings.
 Earlier Cunard "Queens" have welcomed such famous personalities as Elizabeth
 Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, Bing Crosby, and Clark
 Gable.  Since Queen Mary 2's launch in January 2004, she has continued to play

 eminent visitors have included Her Majesty The Queen, His Royal Highness The
 Duke of Edinburgh, Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent, Former
 President George Bush, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Hillary
 Clinton.
