Harry Connick Jr. is among today’s most successful and multi-talented artists who has garnered acclaim in both the music and acting arenas. He will be at the Morris Performing Arts Center in South Bend at 7:30 p.m. this Sunday, July 14.
While Connick Jr. first reached a mass audience as a pianist, singer and bandleader, his subsequent success in theater, film and television have secured his place as a renaissance man and a versatile entertainer, earning him both Grammy and Emmy awards as well as Tony nominations. This performance with his band will be in support of his new album release “Every Man Should Know” (now in stores), a collection of original songs that touches on some of Harry’s deepest feelings about life and love.
His love of music and performing dates back to his childhood in New Orleans, where he studied piano with such luminaries as James Booker and Ellis Marsalis. He first performed publicly at age 5, appeared on his first recording at age 9, and released his self-titled major label debut for Columbia Records at 19, only a year after his high school graduation and his move to New York City.
He has since released 24 albums, totaling more than 28 million in sales, and has received numerous music honors, including three Grammy Awards.
