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.

This event was wonderful. It was a most enjoyable afternoon. The music was excellent and Dr. Harris, the conductor was a really funny guy. I would definately attend such a concert again. The San Jose Wind is a great group and very diverse.
<p>The San Jose Wind Symphony, under the direction of Dr. Edward C. Harris, presents the final concert of its season at McAfee Center.</p>
<p>The theme of the Wind Symphony’s season is “Music Makes the World Go Round.” Each concert explores a different musical culture, from the United States and Europe to Asia and Latin America. This concert turns the spotlight on Russia, with its rich musical heritage. The program offers an intoxicating mix of romance, passion and fire.</p>
<p>The major work on the program is the “Finale” from Kalinnikov’s Symphony No. 1 in G Minor. The concert also includes:</p>
<p>Russian Sailors’ Dance (Reinhold Glière)
Entry March of the Boyars (Johan Halvorsen)
Athletic Festival March (Sergei Prokofiev)
Vocalise (Sergei Rachmaninoff)
Prelude (Dmitri Shostakovich)
Salvation is Created (Pavel Tschesnokoff)</p>
