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.

A Picture of French Impressionistic Music
The Lee/Minkstimas Duo explores the language and diversity of French Music in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Often closely linked to Impressionism in painting, these works of Fauré, Chausson, Debussy, and Ravel are a comprehensive look at the beautiful transition from Romanticism to the Modern world of music.
Described as “breathtakingly beautiful” by The New York Times, violinist Sean Lee and pianist Edvinas Minkstimas performed together at the New York Historical Society, le Poisson Rouge, Hewlett-Woodmere Library, and the Juilliard School’s Paul Hall and Morse Hall during their first season together as a duo. For the 2010/11 Season, the Lee/Minkstimas Duo continues to perform together, often programming solo works and duo works in the same program to formulate thematic programs full of variety.
