Talented singer Frankie Moreno and the Naples Philharmonic go on a wild melodic trip with songs from Sinatra to Elvis to … Mozart.
The Naples Philharmonic Pops series is generously endowed by Mike and Anne Armstrong.
Jack Everly is the principal pops conductor of the Indianapolis and Baltimore Symphony orchestras, Naples Philharmonic and the National Arts Centre Orchestra (Ottawa). He has conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall and appears regularly with the Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom Music Center. Maestro Everly will conduct over 90 performances in more than 20 North American cities this season.
As music director of the National Memorial Day Concert and A Capitol Fourth on PBS, Maestro Everly proudly leads the National Symphony Orchestra in these patriotic celebrations on the National Mall. These concerts attract hundreds of thousands attendees on the lawn and the broadcasts reach millions of viewers and are some of the very highest rated programming on PBS television.
Mr. Everly is the also music director of Duke Energy Yuletide Celebration, now a 30-plus year tradition. He led the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in its first pops recording, Yuletide Celebration, Volume One, which included three of his own orchestrations. Some of his other recordings include In The Presence, featuring the Czech Philharmonic and Daniel Rodriguez, Sandi Patty’s Broadway Stories, the soundtrack to Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Everything's Coming Up Roses: The Complete Overtures Of Jule Styne.
Originally appointed by Mikhail Baryshnikov, Mr. Everly was conductor of the American Ballet Theatre for 14 years, where he served as music director. In addition to his American Ballet Theatre tenure, he teamed with Marvin Hamlisch on Broadway shows that Mr. Hamlisch scored. He conducted Carol Channing hundreds of times in Hello, Dolly! in two separate Broadway productions.
Maestro Everly, a graduate of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, is a recipient of the 2015 Indiana Historical Society Living Legends Award and holds an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from Franklin College in his home state of Indiana. He has been a proud resident of the Indianapolis community for over 14 years, and when not on the podium you can find Maestro Everly at home with his family, which includes Max the wonder dog.
Singer, showman, songwriter, musician: Frankie Moreno is all of these things and more.
As a child prodigy on the piano and a gifted multi-instrumentalist, Moreno was first introduced to American audiences at the age of 10 with his debut on CBS’s Star Search. Since then, the twice-named Las Vegas Headliner of the Year, Moreno has been wowing audiences from coast to coast, performing his own brand of piano-pounding rock and roll.
Moreno’s performance on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars brought him into America’s living rooms again. Performing his self-penned hit “Tangerine Honey,” Moreno has continued with more TV appearances, magazine covers and sold-out concerts, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl. The recipient of an Emmy Nomination for his national TV special, Songs at Home, Moreno is now starring in his own nationwide special for PBS, Frankie Moreno In Concert.
Reaching one million record sales worldwide, Moreno has been collaborating on new music with producer, engineer and guitar legend Pat Thrall (Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber). “Frankie is one of the most naturally gifted musicians I’ve ever worked with. We both share the same vision for music, so it’s a fun and exciting process,” says Thrall.
Moreno toured the US with Grammy-nominated country artist Billy Currington and country superstars Sugarland. Moreno also joined multiplatinum artists Air Supply for their world tour as musical director and wrote their recent radio single, “Dance with Me,” which reached the Billboard’s Top 40.
