Two time Grammy Award winner, Broadway and opera vocalist, Sylvia McNair, teams up with renowned pianist, Kevin Cole. They join the PSO for the music of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gershwin, and Porter.
The PSO’s “ROMANCE” concert captures the spirit of Valentine’s Day in an evening featuring the PSO and Maestro Stelluto, two-time Grammy Award winner singer Sylvia McNair, and the celebrated American pianist Kevin Cole. Cole and McNair will present the music of Rodgers & Hammerstein, Gershwin, and Porter. Having appeared as a soloist with nearly every symphony orchestra and major opera company, McNair has had amazing success with Broadway and Jazz repertoire under the mentorship of Marvin Hamlisch. Kevin Cole has delighted audiences with repertoire that includes the best of 20th-century American music. Kevin’s performances, especially his interpretation of Gershwin, have prompted accolades from some of the foremost authorities in American music. According to Maestro Stelluto, “These two world-class artists, together with the PSO, will be a Valentine’s Day to remember.”
