Lea Michele

May 1, 2017

Broadway former prodigy and star of ABC's Glee, Lea Michele is warming up her beautiful vocals for her first tour since 2011, in support of her forthcoming second studio album, Places. Promising to perform material from both her Glee days and the new album, Michele's new output goes back to the singer's roots in theatre, marking a huge difference from her first album, which was more pop-based. A talented soprano, she is also an accomplished author, with her debut novel Brunette Ambition debuting on The New York Times Best Seller list in 2014.

Hal Holbrook: Mark Twain Tonight

May 4, 2017

Hal Holbrook Mark Twain Tonight! continues to enthrall audiences, with Holbrook performing 20-25 shows a year. By Holbrook's estimation, he has now performed the show well over 2,000 times since 1954, and this year turns a very distinguished 90 years old - not that it would stop him! Just as Mark Twain brought his wit and humor to far-flung places a half-century before, Holbrook-as-Twain has also performed around the world, from Saudi Arabia and Warsaw, to Edinburgh and New Delhi.

Kennedy Center Jazz - A Tribute to Abbey Lincoln

May 5, 2017

Hailed as "the last of the great jazz singers" the late Abbey Lincoln was a songstress in the same class as Etta James and Billie Holliday. Carrying herself with a grace and dignity last seen on the stages of Golden era Hollywood, the singer and civil rights activist let her music do the talking, shying away from the demanding diva-esque qualities of her contemporaries. Now her life and work are celebrated in this special tribute presented by Kennedy Centre Jazz, under direction by Grammy Award-winning composer and producer Terry Lyne Carrington.

Chris Botti

May 6, 2017

The world's top-selling instrumental artist Chris Botti has charm and talent in spades; the Italian American contemporary jazz trumpeter breathes new life into a range of different genres from American songbook standards to bebop classics by the likes of Miles Davis. Botti is not only a highly skilled musician but a consummate entertainer, with a gleam in his eye his onstage banter calls to mind the performers of jazz's golden age.
