A self-taught musical prodigy, George Benson quickly established himself as a premier guitarist in the jazz genre. Then, to the astonishment of critics and the delight of fans, he began singing, pushing his act to pop stardom with hits like "On Broadway," "The Greatest Love of All" and "In Your Eyes." Along the way, he's earned 10 Grammy Awards and been named a Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts. Spend an evening under the stars listening to this icon with the magic fingers and silky-smooth voice perform all your favorites. He'll be joined by teen jazz guitar sensation Andreas Varady, who's been hand-picked for management by the legendary Quincy Jones. Learn More

Ravi Shankar, sitar
Anoushka Shankar, sitar
A living legend, Ravi Shankar is known as “the godfather of world music.” Credited with introducing Western audiences to India’s intricate classical music, Shankar shares the stage with his daughter Anoushka, who is “the purest of her father’s disciples, musically formed entirely in his image” (The New York Times). The father-daughter duo has “a bond that comes up only onstage,” Ms. Shankar has said. “It’s spiritual…and it’s the beautiful music and the excitement.”
