The Music of Michael Jackson with the Nashville Symphony
Friday, October 10, 2014, 8:00 p.m.
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
Brent Havens, conductor
Get ready for a “Thriller” of an evening when the Nashville Symphony, a full band and vocalists pay tribute to the incredible Michael Jackson. From “ABC” and “I’ll Be There” to “Rock With You” and “Beat It” and many, many more, this concert will take you through each era of this legendary performer’s 40-year career. You’ll experience music from the King of Pop like you’ve never heard it before — performed live by the Nashville Symphony.
The role of Michael Jackson will be played by Broadway veteran Chester Gregory, whose most notable credits include Hairspray, Tarzan, Cry-Baby, Sister Act and the national tour of Dreamgirls. He first came to attention as the lead in Black Ensemble Theatre's production of The Jackie Wilson Story, and his portrayal of the ’60s R&B legend earned Gregory a standing ovation from none other than the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson.
