PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A pair of musical geniuses are converging on Verizon Hall for a one night to share experiences through The American Songbook.
Kimmel Center Vice President of Programming Matt Wolf says Marvin Hamlisch is a legend and has the hardware to prove it, “He’s won a Grammy, a Tony and an Oscar.”
Joining him on stage is Michael Feinstein, who Wolf says is another legend in his craft.
“He’s known for his arrangements. He’s a performer. He’s a wonderful artistic programmer and director,” adds Wolf.
Two men, two pianos says Wolf and it makes for a night to remember,“It’s going to be a wonderful evening where they talk, they play, they just really enjoy the history of American music.”
The concert is Sunday, December 26th at Verizon Hall. For more information, go to http://www.kimmelcenter.org/events/index.php?id=3748.
