Pop legend Dionne Warwick, winner of five Grammy Awards, finds her way to the San Jose Center for the Performance Arts as part of the Sister Cities International Annual Conference. Warwick's iconic career started in 1968 with her first Grammy win for "Do You Know Your Way to San Jose" and went on to include 75 hit songs and more than 100 million records sold worldwide. And her career is still going strong: Earlier this month Warwick released a star-studded duets album titled Feels So Good, featuring collaborations with some of today's greatest artists, including Jamie Foxx, Billy Ray Cyrus, Ne-Yo, Gladys Knight, Cee Lo Green and Cyndi Lauper. Hear her sing some of her most memorable tunes, including "Walk on By," "Alfie," "I Say a Little Prayer," "I'll Never Love This Way Again," and many more. Learn More
The theme of the Wind Symphony’s season is “America the Beautiful.” Each concert explores a different aspect of America’s rich musical heritage. Their next concert, Chicago: My Kind of Town, gives concertgoers a sneak preview of the program that SJWS will perform later in the month at the 2009 Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago.
The concert features two outstanding guest artists: French horn virtuoso Alicia Telford performs the Rondo from Richard Strauss’s Concerto No. 1, Op. 11; and baritone saxophonist Aaron Lington leads his jazz quintet in his own composition, Open Evidence. SJWS also honors the late composer Roger Nixon, performing Nixon’s classic Centennial Fanfare-March.
