Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie got his start in Motown as part of the Commodores, but it's as a solo artist that he really shines. He became one of the most successful male solo artists of the 1980s, earning No. 1 hits from his debut in 1982 with "Truly." His other hits include 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. Now the five-time Grammy winner is following up a sold-out European run with a North American tour, including a stop at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater. He'll perform hits from his 30-year discography, beginning with his eponymous 1982 debut and extending through last year's Tuskegee, a platinum-selling collection that features duets of his hits with a variety of artists. Word on the street is that these concerts tend to become a giant sing-along, so brush up on your lyrics and get ready for some of the greatest ballads the '80s had to offer and much more. Learn More

The Canadian Brass are pleased to announce their upcoming annual New York City Holiday concert at the renowned Town Hall, continuing their long standing tradition of New York area performances in December.
Founded by Charles Daellenbach and Gene Watts in 1970, The Canadian Brass have set the standard for brass performance and recording. The light-hearted virtuosi of the ensemble have enthralled and captivated fans of all ages for nearly forty years. They perform works not only from the classical repertoire but also take daring leaps into jazz, contemporary and pop music idioms.
The Canadian Brass have been featured on such shows as The Tonight Show, NBC’s Today Show, and Entertainment Tonight, to name a few. They have appeared as guest artists on Evening at the Pops with John Williams and the Boston Pops, Beverly Sills’ Music Around the World, and numerous PBS specials.
Their performance comes on the heels of the release of their new album, Echo: Glory of Gabrieli (Opening Day Records), featuring music for single, double and triple brass choirs and organ. In the album, the ensemble brings its trademark virtuosity and artistic passion to antiphonal brass music by Giovanni Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi and Samuel Scheidt, composers of the late Renaissance and early Baroque. The album’s title salutes Gabrieli, who was organist at the famous Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice at the turn of the seventeenth century and one of the first to compose music specifically for brass instruments and brass choirs.
