Today is:
Sat, Oct 25, 2014
7:30pm
Main Stage: John Pizzarelli
(Arts and Culture)

After his recent smash success with the Boston Pops, jazz artist John Pizzarelli was hailed by the Boston Globe for "reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz." Using performers like Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Joao Gilberto, and the songs of composers from Richard Rodgers and George Gershwin to James Taylor, Lennon and McCartney as touchstones, Pizzarelli has established himself as one of the prime interpreters of the Great American Songbook and beyond, bringing to his work the cool jazz flavor of his brilliant guitar playing and singing. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Conan.

This engagement is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest, which is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Illinois Arts Council.
