Enjoy an evening of romantic music on this Valentine’s Day weekend as legendary pianist Peter Nero performs a delightful fusion of popular and classical styles. This two-time Grammy Award-winning virtuoso and entertainer extraordinaire combines the works of popular and classical composers in a concert of beautiful music. For example, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Memory” from “Cats” with touches of Puccini’s “Un Bel Di,” Cole Porter’s “Night and Day” combined with Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata” and a series of variations on “I Got Rhythm” fused with sounds of Rachmaninoff, Beethoven, Liszt, Mozart and Prokofiev. Since the 1960s, Peter Nero has warmed the hearts of audiences across the globe with his dazzling musical gifts and brilliant wit. This Juilliard-trained artist has recorded more than 65 albums, and has earned a sterling reputation in his 34 years as conductor and musical director of the legendary Philly Pops with his signature blend of classical music, swing, Broadway, blues and jazz.
