The Pacific Symphony Presents MICHAEL ANDREW SINGS SINATRA, 11/6-8The Pacific Symphony Presents MICHAEL ANDREW SINGS SINATRA, 11/6-8
October 17, 2014

Standards made wildly popular by the great male nightclub singers of the 1950s—Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bobby Darin and others—electrify the concert hall for the opening of Pacific Symphony's 2014-15 Pops Season. This high-energy show features award-winning vocalist Michael Andrew, who was praised on Larry King Live, “as one of the great singers of all time.” Andrew headlined the world-famous Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center for two years as its main singer and bandleader. He was also the band leader and singer for Merv Griffin's “Coconut Club” at The Beverly Hilton before creating his hit musical comedy, “Mickey Swingerhead and The Earthgirls” and the 18-piece Atomic Big Band featured in the film “Poseidon.” Now taking orchestras by storm in cities across America, Andrew joins the Symphony, led by Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, to recall the “good old days” when music was swinging, jazzy and always came with a Big Band.

by Richard Sasanow - October 17, 2014

Soprano Anna Netrebko was AWOL. Tenor Marcello Giordani wasn't there. Mezzo Isabel Leonard didn't make it either. At least tenor Richard Tucker (1913-1975) had the best excuse for not being at Avery Fisher Hall on Sunday evening. But, as they say “the show must go on”--and the annual gala of The Richard Tucker Foundation certainly did, despite all the cancellations. Celebrating the famed singer, as well as showcasing the newly anointed winner of its top award, tenor Michael Fabiano, the evening was filled with many pleasures. (more...)


The Pacific Symphony Presents MOZART & BRAHMS, 11/13-15The Pacific Symphony Presents MOZART & BRAHMS, 11/13-15
October 16, 2014

From turbulent, agitated and ominous to lyrical and tender—it's a passionate journey the audience won't soon forget when Pacific Symphony and guest pianist Haochen Zhang deliver Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 20 in all its glory. Following Zhang's BBC Proms debut, The Telegraph (United Kingdom) called the international piano sensation “one of those hot young Chinese virtuosi everyone's talking about.” Led by Bulgarian-born guest conductor Rossen Milanov, the orchestra then performs a work by Brahms, as the composer steps out of Beethoven's shadow with his rich, ingenious Second Symphony. The cheery and almost pastoral mood of the piece often invites comparisons with Beethoven's Sixth Symphony. Rounding out the versatile program is Thomas Adès' “Three Studies from Couperin,” of which The Jerusalem Post wrote: “Such a combination of enchanting, sensitive lyricism and hypnotizing forcefulness is a phenomenon encountered very rarely.” (more...)
