Associate Conductor John Varineau will lead the symphony in the performance featuring Brickman, who is the best-selling contemporary solo pianist in America. The program will include “Crossroads,” “If You Believe,” “Hero’s Dream,” “Valentine” and “The Gift.”
In addition to his two Grammy nominations and best-selling albums, Brickman has 28 charted radio hits, recently tying for most No. 1 CDs on Billboard’s New Age chart. He regularly collaborates with chart-topping performers in a wide range of musical genres, from Martina McBride and Lady Antebellum to Carly Simon and Herb Alpert. His 2010 album, “Home,” featured an eclectic mix of performers — including “American Idol” Matt Giraud, Australian pop star Delta Goodrem and award-winning country singer Ty Herndon.
Tickets start at $32 and are available at the symphony office, 300 Ottawa N.W., Suite 100; or by calling 616-454-9451, ext. 4.
