    January 20, 21

     

    Multi-talented Michael Cavanaugh was handpicked by Billy Joel to star in the Broadway musical Movin’ Out, for which Cavanaugh received both Tony and Grammy nominations. The "New Voice of the Great American Rock ‘n’ Roll Songbook" (Billboard Magazine) and Sarasota Orchestra swing through Joel’s hits and those of fellow piano-rocking pop icon Elton John. Selections include "Piano Man," "Bennie and the Jets," "My Life," "Rocket Man," and more. This high-octane show treats Sarasota Orchestra audiences to music of two of the all-time greatest entertainers.

    This finger-snapping program shines a spotlight on great composers of the early 20th century, including George Gershwin ("Fascinating Rhythm"), Irving Berlin ("Alexander’s Ragtime Band"), and Isham Jones ("It Had To Be You"). Their tunes hold timeless melodies and rhythms that continue to lift spirits today. Joined on keyboard by Bobby Floyd, member of the Legendary Count Basie Orchestra, and chanteuse Sydney McSweeney, jazz trumpeter Byron Stripling dons two extra hats as conductor and vocalist. The result: an inspiring sonic portrait of how this collection of songs shaped the Great American Songbook.
