MANCHESTER, NH – Be part of the holiday concert tradition of the season with Grammy-nominated songwriter and piano sensation Jim Brickman as he celebrates A Joyful Christmas at the Palace Theatre once again, this year featuring special guest Anne Cochran.
Jim Brickman delivers the sound and spirit of the season with carols, classics and original songs on his 21st holiday tour. Holiday music brings yuletide memories to life as Brickman helps you escape from the holiday hustle-bustle and keeps your days merry and bright!
“I write music to be shared – to soothe, to inspire, to celebrate, to love. To me, music is the pure and simple soundtrack to life’s most memorable moments,” says Brickman.
For the uninitiated, Jim Brickman has transformed the genre of solo piano music with his original pop-style instrumentals and star-studded vocal collaborations.
Brickman’s extraordinary keyboard skills have earned him 21 No. 1 albums and 32 Top 20 Radio Singles in the industry bible, “Billboard” magazine. He’s garnered two Grammy nominations, gospel music’s Dove Award, two SESAC Songwriter of the Year Awards, and the Canadian Country Music Award. He also has a music scholarship named for him by his alma mater, the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music. Born and raised in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Brickman began his music training at the age of 5. But young James wouldn’t conform to the rudimentary regulations of piano lessons.
“He didn’t have the knack for it,’ his first teacher would say. That didn’t discourage the tenacious pianist from creating his own unique brand of musical storytelling. An innovative force in the music industry was born. Brickman’s first album release was 1995’s “No Words,” and he’s gone on to sell eight million albums worldwide. He’s written three best-selling books, starred in four TV concert specials, and is in the 20th season of hosting radio’s popular “The Jim Brickman Show.”
Bring your family, friends or that special someone and make Jim Brickman your new holiday tradition. Celebrate the faith, love and togetherness that we value most this time of year and share in the celebration of A Joyful Christmas.
