Event Notes


Among the most prolific and influential composers of the second half of the twentieth century was, without a doubt, Burt Bacharach.

Beginning with his seemingly endless string of hits with lyricist Hal David - “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again”, “Alfie”, “What’s New Pussycat?”, “The Look of Love”, “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head”, “I Say a Little Prayer”, “(They Long To Be) Close To You” (truly just scratching the surface) - to his re-emergence in the eighties collaborating with then wife/lyricist Carole Bayer Sager and producing hits like “Arthur’s Theme (The Best That You Can Do)”, “Heartlight”, “On My Own” and “That’s What Friends Are For” - Bacharach’s musical legacy is substantial, celebrated and far-reaching.

BRILLIANTLY BACHARACH celebrates not only the music, but the life, times and personal trials and tribulations of this Grammy, Academy and Emmy Award-winning composer. Featuring Dean Hollin, John MacMurchy, and Sheri Weldon - supported by an outstanding band - BRILLIANTLY BACHARACH will take you on a “Musical Biography” of epic musical proportions.
