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 starting with 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 PNC Bank Arts Center. 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. 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.

**Monday, March 25, 2013: __The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere
__**Using the famous Longfellow poem, “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere," this concert is a riveting and thrilling work of modern choral music. Rene Clausen’s five movements have been described as invoking the “excitement of the horse ride as well as the quiet of the streets, the beauty of the night, the history of the rickety old bell tower, and the breathless excitement as the message is delivered.” The Distinguished Concert Singers take the stage with a special appearance by the Gay and Lesbian Big Apple Corps.
