Frank Loesser left a legacy adored by many, a legacy that will be honored Sunday through Sautee Supper Club's "Heart and Soul Revue: The Music of Frank Loesser."

The award-winning composer and lyricist may have passed away in 1969, but Loesser's talent lives on through his many works, including "Guys and Dolls," "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and "Heart and Soul."

"My favorite Frank Loesser work has to be ‘Guys and Dolls' because we performed it in high school," said Kathy Blandin, the executive director of Sautee Nacoochee Community Association. "My background is theater and that was one of the shows that convinced me to be involved in it. It has special place in my heart."

Blandin, along with other members of the performing arts committee, put together the event.

"We chose to honor Frank Loesser because a big percentage of our patrons really love Broadway music; he wrote for Guys and Dolls, as well as many tunes we all know and love," Blandin said.

All proceeds from this event go to fund the operations of the Sautee Nacoochee Community Association center.

"Dinner is being provided by Chef Lee Hull, owner of Sweet Breads. His food - especially desserts - is incredible and unlike any you've ever seen," Blandin said.

Entertainment should run for 45 minutes, providing one-act of Loesser's most famous works.

"Our four performers are all very accomplished musicians," Blandin said. "They live up here and are local, but they're amazing. It's not just the person next door singing, they've all had professional careers."

Though Frank Loesser may not be a household name, his works are known to many.

"This will be a great show," Blandin said. "It's like a dinner theater; I know patrons will have a great time."
