Together, these two superb musical artists’ collaboration of powerful dynamic vocals and masterful piano playing creates a delightfully entertaining and beautiful musical experience.

At just 23 years old, Emmet is a charismatic singer and rising star who thrills audiences with his rich voice along with his quick wit and boyish charm. To date, he’s commanded stages from The Staples Center in Los Angeles to the Palais Todesco in Vienna, Austria.

Emmet will be joined onstage by renowned and critically-acclaimed pianist, composer and recording artist Philip Fortenberry, who provided the “hands of Liberace” for Michael Douglas in the Emmy-winning HBO biopic, “Behind the Candelabra.” Fortenberry received the very first annual “Ghostlight Award” as Best Musician on Broadway for his role as pianist and associate conductor for the Broadway musical, “Rocky,” and he has played prestigious concert stages from Lincoln Center to Carnegie Hall, from the Kennedy Center to the White House.

Special guest cellist Lindsey Springer, also of the orchestras of Celine Dion and “Steve Wynn’s Showstoppers,” adds an extra dimension of excellence to the musical menagerie that scans the spectrum from classical to pop including music by Adele, Mariah Carey, Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban, along with many Broadway favorites including music from “Ragtime,” “Seussical the Musical” and “Man of La Mancha.” The concert will also feature original songs written by their director, Keith Thompson of “Jersey Boys” and “The Composers Showcase,” as well as new songs by Emmet who, along with being a stunning vocalist, is also an accomplished composer and lyricist.

“In Concert” is presented by PK Music and directed by Thompson, named this year as Best Composer by Vegas Seven’s “Best of The City.” This exciting collaboration between these spectacular musical artists is a “must-see” and not to be missed!

Tickets range from $25 to $45 and can be purchased at The Smith Center Box Office, by phone 702-749-2000, or online at
