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.

“We are thrilled to welcome the celebrated 1997 Van Cliburn Competition laureate back to perform one of the landmark works of the piano repertoire, Beethoven’s great C Minor Concerto. Nakamatsu and I have a long shared history of collaborative music making,” remarks Music Director and Conductor, Mitchell Sardou Klein.
The program for these concerts consists entirely of major masterworks by “the three B’s.” To begin, Bach’s Cantata Chorale: Ein’ feste Burg ist unser Gott, and Great Fugue: Clavierubung III, Wir glauben all’an einem Gott come to vibrant symphonic life in the hands of the master conductor and orchestrator Leopold Stokowski the greatest orchestral colorist of all time. Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto stems from his dark, stormy mode, with music that challenges any pianist’s or orchestra’s technical and interpretive powers. Lastly, Brahms’ glorious and triumphal Second Symphony completes this trio of majestic classical benchmark achievements. This is a work of soaring melodies, brooding intensity, and sublime serenity, ending in a blazing finale that leaves the listener breathless.
