Michael Feinstein is well known as the Ambassador of the Great American Songbook. Lauded for his Emmy-nominated PBS specials, NPR series and concerts spanning the globe, Feinstein delighted audiences in his last appearance at Wharton Center nearly 10 years ago. He joins forces with vocal powerhouse and force to be reckoned with, Storm Large, for an unforgettable evening of music. Storm Large, the longtime lead singer of popular music group Pink Martini, and Feinstein will pay tribute to a wide range of artists such as Al Green, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and many others, joined by a stellar five-piece band.
To date, he has performed at such prestigious venues as The White House, Buckingham Palace, Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and the Sydney Opera House. Feinstein married producer Terrence Flannery in 2008 after having dated for more than a decade. The two were married by family court judge and television personality Judge Judith Scheindlin, also known as Judge Judy. Flannery has played a large part in Feinstein’s career for years.
Feinstein currently serves as artistic director for The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana. Feinstein and Flannery have homes in New York, Los Angeles and Indiana.
