Congratulations to Broadway composer John Kander who yesterday was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barrack Obama in a White House Ceremony.

As one half of the dynamic writing duo with Fred Ebb, John Kander is the composer of classic Broadway musicals including Cabaret, Chicago, Woman Of The Year, Steel Pier and Kiss Of The Spider Woman. The duo also wrote an enormous amount of material for film and television including the song New York, New York, immortalised by Frank Sinatra.
