For one night, Borough President Melinda Katz masqueraded as Melinda Katz, the singing sensation, at the 16th annual Great Lawn Summer Concert at St. John’s University on July 30.

Making an appearance alongside the Queens Symphony Orchestra, the group her father founded, Katz belted out a rendition of “Summertime” from the 1935 opera “Porgy and Bess.”

She also served as a guest conductor for a performance of “The Stars and Stripes Forever.”

The free concert was attended by around 1,000 people.

Welcome to the discussion.
