The Long Beach Symphony POPS! orchestra and vocalist Denzal Sinclaire will pay tribute to the love songs of American music legend Nat King Cole at 8pm on Saturday, Feb. 18 in the Long Beach Arena, 300 E. Ocean Blvd.
In addition to featuring 10 of Cole’s biggest hits, Sinclaire will perform versions of popular songs, including “Amazing Grace” and Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind.”
Conductor, arranger, composer, chamber musician and pianist Stuart Malina, who is now in his 15th season as music director and conductor of the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra, will lead the orchestra. His accomplishments include music of all genres, from classical and opera to jazz and Broadway. In June 2003, he won the Tony Award for orchestration with Billy Joel for the musical Movin’ Out.
“The Symphony is thrilled to bring musicians of this caliber to join those in our orchestra,” said Kelly Lucera, Long Beach Symphony executive director.
Seating options range from 10-top tables to four-top bistro-area seating to seats in the loge. Regardless of seating preference, patrons are invited to bring their own picnics and libations or to purchase dinner from a list of preferred local caterers. Doors open at 6:30pm to allow time for dining and mingling with friends; the concert begins at 8pm.
