KIMMEL CULTURAL CAMPUS PRESENTS GRAMMY® AWARD-WINNING ARTIST HARRY CONNICK, JR. WITH HIS FIRST NATIONAL HOLIDAY TOUR

 

A HOLIDAY CELEBRATION

NOVEMBER 19, 2022

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (September 19, 2022) – The Kimmel Cultural Campus presents Harry Connick, Jr. in his national A Holiday Celebration tour, at the Campus’ Academy of Music on Saturday, November 19, 2022, at 8:00 p.m. One of the most beloved artists performing holiday music, GRAMMY and Emmy Award-winning musician, singer, composer, legendary live performer, and multi-platinum best-selling artist Harry Connick, Jr. has been thrilling audiences around the world for decades. Long regarded as one of America’s finest vocalists and pianists, he has continued to establish himself as one of the most beloved artists performing holiday music to date, thrilling audiences around the world for decades with his definitive take on Christmas classics, as well as his own originals and fan favorites like “(It Must've Been Ol') Santa Claus” and “When My Heart Finds Christmas.”

 

“Harry Connick, Jr. is a one-of-a-kind performer, melding the swagger of Sinatra with the crooning of Nat King Cole and Mel Tormé,” said Frances Egler, Senior Director of Programming and Presentations on the Kimmel Cultural Campus. “He’s also an incredible musician, and we are thrilled to add his performance to our exciting holiday lineup. From traditions like George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®, our A Soulful Christmas Gospel concert, and The Philadelphia Orchestra’s Messiah, to The Illusionists – Magic of the Holidays, and film classics like Home Alone in concert, there really is something for everyone this season.”

 

Connick exemplifies excellence in every aspect of the entertainment world. He burst on to the national scene as a 20-year-old musical prodigy in 1988, but he’d been playing piano since the age of 5. Throughout his career, Connick has stretched his talents into movies and theater and expanded his musical repertoire. His latest album, 2021’s Alone with My Faith, earned Connick his 16th Grammy nomination, this time in the Best Roots Gospel category. Connick has also won two Emmy Awards and received two Tony® Award nominations, one for his performance in a revival of The Pajama Game. He’s sold millions of holiday albums, which have become the soundtrack to Christmas for fans around the world.

 

Other featured upcoming performances on the Kimmel Cultural Campus include Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: The Echoes Tour (September 23, 2022, Miller Theater); Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson: An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies – II(September 23, 2022, Verizon Hall); Wheel of Fortune Live!
