The Big Apple loves CC! Once again, the fabulous non-profit, Theater Within brought Camille to the stage at City Winery on the Hudson River to celebrate the 80th birthday of the legend herself, Joni Mitchell. Serving as MC, Camille connected with the crowd and the activated the love in the room for the music icon as fans joined together with a fabulous line up of female performers who came to pay tribute to their muse.
Theater Within had four outstanding photographs of Joni for the live auction. Two by famed photographer, Henry Diltz who photographer Joni at a bbq at Mama Cass’ house with little known, upcoming superstar, Eric Clapton! The other photo of Joni leaning outside the window of her “very, very, very fine house” was the inspiration for Graham Nash’s hit, “Our House.” Henry Diltz was the official photographer for Woodstock and shot hundreds of famous rock and roll album covers
including Morrison Hotel from The Doors.
The others were portraits taken by the late, great Vogue photographer, Jack Robinson prior to Joni’s historic performance at Carnegie Hall. Camille’s outstanding experience as an auctioneer yielded over $8,500 for a very happy Theater Within.
Camille’s already been hired for TW’s next event! The opening night of John Lennon’s photographer, Bob Gruen new exhibit at City Winery, Sunday March 3rd, 2024.
Thank you to the incredibly generous, Derek Meade for gifting CC with these photos.
