Harry Connick Jr. at Jackson Hall
Harry Connick Jr. is set to perfrom at TPAC's Jackson Hall on Friday, Feb. 27, at 8 p.m.
Having been showered with awards for his live and recorded musical performances, Connick has exemplified excellence in every aspect of the entertainment world.
The foundation of Connick's art is the music of his native New Orleans, where he began performing as a pianist and vocalist at the age of five. His career took off when he signed with Columbia Records at 18 years old and revealed his stunning piano technique and vivid musical imagination on his self-titled debut album. His follow-up album, "20," announced that Connick was equally gifted as a singer, but this was soon overshadowed by his multi-platinum success with the soundtrack for the hit comedy "When Harry Met Sally..." To date, Connick has released 29 albums, won three Grammy Awards and two Emmy Awards, and garnered sales of 28 million. His most recent releases are "Smokey Mary" and "Every Man Should Know."
