After getting his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, singer-songwriter Lionel Richie became one of the most successful male solo artists of the 1980s, with hits like "Truly," the Caribbean-flavored "All Night Long," "Endless Love" with Diana Ross, "Hello" and "Say You, Say Me," which also won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Richie's concerts tend to become giant sing-alongs, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for a night of magic. Sharing the stage with the five-time Grammy winner will be CeeLo Green. Known for his solo career as well as being a part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, Green has recorded numerous hits and is most widely recognized for the chart-topping single "Crazy" and his time as a judge on The Voice.

"The Philharmonia is on a high with Esa-Pekka Salonen," wrote The Observer of London's Philharmonia Orchestra and indeed, this revered ensemble has entered the new millennium during the most exciting phase in its history. Led by one of today's visionary conductors, Esa-Pekka Salonen, the orchestra is a musical pioneer, leading the field with its extraordinary quality of playing. The Philharmonia is also celebrated for its use of new technology to reach and inspire a global audience.
The orchestra has enjoyed fruitful collaborations with many of the past century's greatest conductors, including Wilhelm Furtwängler, Richard Strauss, Arturo Toscanini, and Herbert von Karajan. Otto Klemperer was the first of many outstanding principal conductors, a storied list that includes Riccardo Muti, Giuseppe Sinopoli, and Christoph von Dohnányi.
Current Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Esa-Pekka Salonen made his London conducting debut in 1983 at age 25 with the Philharmonia, stepping in at the last minute to lead a now-legendary performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 3. Today, he has forged an incredible, dynamic relationship with the ensemble, both as a conductor and composer, rediscovering and reinvigorating the music of the past as well as creating and championing the music of our time.
Join these formidable artists as they perform cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire, and arguably, the greatest opera of the 20th century, Alban Berg's Wozzeck.
