The St. Augustine Amphitheatre proudly presents GRAMMY and Emmy Award-Winner Harry Connick, Jr.’s “A New Orleans Tricentennial Celebration” on Friday, June 8, 2018!
Connick’s career has exemplified excellence across multiple platforms in the entertainment world. Along with his GRAMMY® and Emmy® Awards, he’s received Tony Award® nominations for his live and recorded musical performances, his achievements in film and television, and his appearances on Broadway as both an actor and a composer.
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. Over the past three decades, he’s established himself as a musician, singer, and composer, a legendary live performer, and a best-selling artist with millions of CDs sold around the world. Connick has also made his mark as an actor in films (appearing in over 19 films such as “Dolphin Tale”, “Hope Floats”, “PS I Love You”, and “Copycat”), on television (American Idol, Will & Grace, South Pacific) and on Broadway (Pajama Game, Thou Shalt Not).
Connick’s honors, including the induction into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, Honorary Doctorates from Tulane and Loyola Universities and the Jefferson Award for Public Service, have not led Harry Connick, Jr. to slow his creative pace; they only confirm his determination to apply his talents in ways that prove inspirational to other artists and publicly spirited citizens.
