About the Concert
Liberace, American showman and glittering pianist, was the highest paid entertainer in the world in the 1970s and ‘80s before his life and death became headlines. When asked about one harsh review, he quipped “I cried all the way to the bank.”
Veteran conductor and concert pianist Brian Jackson is one of Canada’s most beloved pops conductors. Now, Maestro Jackson brings the spirit of Liberace to life with re-creations of Liberace’s sparkling style, including a Gershwin medley, Chopin’s “Nocturne,” “Flight of the Bumblebee,” “The Entertainer,” “Warsaw Concerto,” “Chariots of Fire,” plus other show tunes and light classics.
