Jim Brickman Joins the Canton Symphony Orchestra

Cleveland native Jim Brickman is a worldwide sensation with his soulful piano playing.  His simplistic song style has won the hearts of many, and has kept his music on the top of the charts across the country and the world.  In May, he will be coming back to Canton to join the CSO for one special night for their Benefit Concert.  The concert begins with the generosity of the CSO musicians, who are donating their services for the rehearsal and performance.  Concert proceeds will support the Canton Symphony Orchestra Endowment – ensuring the future of Stark County’s flagship arts organization.

Jim Brickman is an American songwriter and pianist of pop, as well as a radio show host. Brickman has earned six Gold and Platinum albums. He is known for his solo piano compositions, pop-style instrumentals, and vocal collaborations with artists such as Lady Antebellum, Johnny Mathis, Michael W. Smith, Martina McBride, Megan Hilty, Donny Osmond, Delta Goodrem, Olivia Newton-John, and many others.  He has earned two Grammy nominations for his albums Peace (2003) for Best Instrumental, and Faith (2009) for Best New Age Album; an SESAC “Songwriter of the Year” award; a Canadian Country Music Award for Best Vocal/Instrumental Collaboration; and a Dove Award presented by the Gospel Music Association.

Along with regular concert tickets, the CSO is also selling tickets for a special VIP event after the concert.  This post-concert party will have complimentary hors d’oeuvres, cash bar, and a meet & greet with Mr. Brickman.  The party is being held in Foundation Hall, which is connected to the Zimmermann Symphony Center.  Tickets for the VIP event are on sale now through the box office and online, and are $25 each.
