An Evening of Pop Icon Elton John's Greatest Hits
Join the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra to celebrate the life and music of one of the most influential musicians of all time, Sir Elton John. The ensemble welcomes Broadway star Michael Cavanaugh on vocals and piano for an evening of the eight-time Grammy Award-winning pop legend's best loved works spanning an incredible career, from Bennie and The Jets to The Lion King's Can You Feel The Tonight.
After forming a partnership with fellow songwriter Bernie Taupin, John rose to prominence as a performer to be reckoned during the 70s after the duo found the golden formula of gospel chords, John's melodious tenor voice and grand scaled string arrangements. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and gay-icon cultivated an extravagant, free-wheeling persona that lives on in his later years; the 70 year old diva is still going strong and as fabulous as ever.
