Barry Manilow to play with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra
HollywoodNews.com: Legendary musician and performer Barry Manilow announces a series of first-ever Florida symphony concerts backed by The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra of Punta Gorda, Florida in January of 2011. Beginning on January 20th, and stretching across five major Florida cities, Manilow will bring his greatest hits to the Sunshine State. Tickets will be available to the general public on September 24. VIP and BMIFC advance tickets are presently on sale at Manilow.com.
The Florida concert series is an entirely exclusive and distinct experience from Manilow’s current critically acclaimed Paris Las Vegas residency shows, and features The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra plus Manilow’s Band and Cast from his Las Vegas Show. The concerts, produced in partnership with STILETTO Entertainment and BRE Presents, will mark the first time Manilow has performed with an orchestral accompaniment in Florida.
Recently, Manilow wowed fans in Atlantic City with a one-night-only show backed by the esteemed New York Pops to a sold-out crowd at Caesars Boardwalk Hall. Prior to that, he lit up the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, to rave response.
While in both cities, and in signature Manilow fashion, he was able to raise money and collect instruments for the Manilow Music Project to benefit local school music programs. The Manilow Music Project provides scholarships and musical instruments to secondary and high school music programs throughout the country.
Tickets for the following performances are now available:
January 20th at Orlando’s Amway Center
January 21st at Tampa’s St. Pete Times Forum
January 26th at Jacksonville’s Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena
