A Tribute to Toussaint

A Tribute to Toussaint

 

The late performer and songwriter Allen Toussaint worked with Dr. John, B.J. Thomas, Boz Scaggs, Paul McCartney, Patti LaBelle, Fats Domino and many others. As a philanthropist, he helped raise more than $1 million for the hungry and homeless in his native New Orleans. To show their deep appreciation for his music and charitable acts, New Orleans Artists Against Hunger & Homelessness honored Toussaint on his 75th birthday with this concert, recorded in 2013.

 

 

Mannheim Steamroller
30/40 Live

 

Celebrate 30 years of musical holiday magic and 40 years of groundbreaking compositions with this American group known for blending classical music and rock. The program features songs from their annual Christmas tour, including the “Deck the Halls,” “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen,” “Silent Night” and “Greensleeves.”

 

Jazz and the Philharmonic

 

This is a unique, generational and wholly American concert experience that highlights two of the greatest musical art forms the world has ever seen: classical and jazz. With performances by Chick Corea, Bobby McFerrin, Terence Blanchard and Elizabeth Joy Roe, this special emphasizes the works of composers such as Bach and Mozart with these contemporary artists. The music is performed with the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra from the University of Miami Frost School of Music and National YoungArts Foundation alumni.
