Live/Concert

Billy Childs

When: Fri., Jan. 29, 8-10 p.m. 2016

Best known for his ability to fuse the jazz and classical music genres, pianist and composer Billy Childs and his ensemble join forces with a Detroit Symphony Orchestra string quartet in a heartfelt tribute to singer-songwriter, Laura Nyro. With her blend of aching ballads, jazz rhythms and intimate, relevant lyrics, Nyro's songs became iconic hits for Barbra Streisand, Blood Sweat and Tears, Three Dog Night and The Fifth Dimension. The evening also includes Childs' own material, all in the acoustic intimacy of Orchestra Hall.
