Grammy-winning R&B diva Patti LaBelle has blown audiences away ever since she and her '70s group Labelle belted out "Lady Marmalade." Since then, the powerhouse performer has piled up accolades for a songbook that includes "New Attitude," "If You Asked Me To" and "If Only You Knew." Her soaring voice has graced the halls of the Apollo Theater, the Metropolitan Opera House and the White House. LaBelle's current tour finds her touching on classic tracks and revisiting her gospel music roots. R&B singer Lyfe Jennings ("Must Be Nice," "Cry") starts off the evening with heartfelt songs about his hard-knock life. 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. The Beat Goes On takes concertgoers on a rhythmic journey through the American musical landscape, from the gospel-inspired American Hymnsong Suite by Dawyne Milburn to the Civil War battlefields of Morton Gould’s American Salute.
Our guest artist for the afternoon is Galen Lemmon, principal percussionist with Symphony Silicon Valley. Mr. Lemmon will perform Gary Ziek’s Concerto for Percussion Solo and Wind Ensemble, showcasing his formidable talents on marimba, vibraphone, bells and a battery of drums and tom-toms.*
