Harry Connick Jr. is a man of many (praised) talents – he has released 29 albums, appeared on television shows such as Will & Grace, in movies like Hope Floats, and has Broadway credits for Thou Shalt Not (he was nominated for a Tony for both composer and lyricist) and as a lead in the Broadway revival of The Pajama Game. Additionally, Harry currently sits alongside Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban as an American Idol judge.
Connick began his rise to fame at the tender age of 5, where he quickly became known as a jazz prodigy in his hometown of New Orleans. His career really began to take off when he signed with Columbia Records and revealed to the world his stunning piano and vocal skills on his self-titled debut album. He went on to stun his listeners with 20, which was quickly overshadowed by the multi-platinum When Harry Met Sally. Most recently, Harry has released Smokey Mary and Every Man Should Know.
Luckily, for a group of Palm Beach residents, Harry is coming to the Kravis Center on Feb. 11, 2015. Tickets for the show went on sale on Dec. 12 and quickly sold out.
If you weren’t able to get your hands on a pair of tickets to see Harry, don’t fret. The Kravis Center has a season packed full of great performances, including musicians, comedians, orchestras and bands such as:
- Howie Mandel
- The Palm Beach Pops
- La Bohème by the Palm Beach Opera
- Vanessa Williams
- Mariinsky Orchestra
- Alton Brown Live
- The Boston Pops
- Joy Behar & Susie Essman
- Tony Bennett
- Moscow City Ballet
Tickets are still currently available for the aforementioned shows; the list is hardly inclusive, however. Be sure to visit kravis.org to see a full list of what is coming up for the 2014-2015 season.
