An “Unforgettable” Valentine’s Weekend with the RPO!

For the upcoming Valentine's weekend, book a date with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and prepare to be swept off your feet! Friday, February 11 and Saturday, February 12 at 8:00 pm at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre, Jeff Tyzik and the RPO welcome acclaimed vocalist Dee Daniels to the stage.

With a unique stylistic mix of jazz, gospel, and blues, Daniels - who has performed with jazz legends such as Sarah Vaughan and Lionel Hampton - will put her own special spin on the work of some of the greatest singers and songwriters in history, including Stevie Wonder, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Frank Sinatra, and Nat "King" Cole. Click here to see a video of Daniels live in concert.

Daniels and the RPO will perform classic songs such as Stevie Wonder's Isn't She Lovely, Unforgettable - composed by Irving Gordon and made famous by Nat "King" Cole - Bobby Troop's Route 66, Charlie Chaplin's Smile, and Don Redman's Gee Baby, Ain't I Good to You, made famous by both Nat "King" Cole and Ray Charles.

Don't miss what is sure to be an "unforgettable" evening! Child care is available at the YMCA MetroCenter for the Saturday performance - click here for details.
