Valentines Special & Fundraiser w/ Special Guest: Pianist, Danny Wright

February 10 @ 8:00 pm

Valentines Special and Fundraiser! Special guest, pianist Danny Wright! February 10 only! Hickman Center, Ft. Worth. Heavy hors d’ oeuvres, complimentary wine, and soft drinks.

An exciting message from Timeless Concerts president and artistic director LeeAnne Chenoweth:

We Timeless Concerts performers have prepared a very special concert for you! We are excited and honored to be able to present special guest artist, pianist Danny Wright, who recently returned to live in Ft. Worth! Danny grew up in Fort Worth and sold over 11 million albums as of 2019 since his debut in 1986. He has been named twice by Billboard magazine as a Top 10 artist in New Age Music, but he specializes in three distinct music styles: adult contemporary compositions, Broadway show tunes and movie themes, and classical music. He has been inspired by Beethoven, Pachelbel, and Debussy, as well as by such Broadway greats as Gershwin, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerome Kern, and Stephen Sondheim. Wright began playing piano at age four and studied classical piano under Dr. Harris Cavender for ten years. Wright has a gift for improvising and had won a full scholarship to TCU, where he studied music education. He began composing his own music in 1985. With Dori and Bob Nichols, he founded the label Nichols-Wright Records (later Moulin D’Or Recordings) to release his own albums, making his recording debut in 1986. As of the 1990s, Wright began playing concerts all over the US. I remember accompanying Danny Wright in concert with other members of the Ft Worth Symphony in the 90s, and I am thrilled we have reconnected! Danny has graciously agreed to be our special guest for this important fundraiser!

Yes, our regular Timeless Concerts performers will be part of this concert: violinists LeeAnne Chenoweth and Tim Angel, cellist Alice Lee, pianist Heejung Kang, tenor Sergio Cepeda and soprano Youna Hartgraves.  We love that we present all types of music! Our repeat audience knows that over the years, our vocalists and musicians have performed music of nearly all eras and styles, from Bach and Vivaldi to Puccini and Verdi to today’s living composers. For this special evening, we are preparing tangos of Argentina, the most beautiful opera arias and chamber music of the French and Italian romantics. As our special guest artist, Danny Wright will perform his own compositions for solo piano for a portion of the concert.

Stay for the post-concert party accompanied by pianist Erik Barnes while mingling with our concert performers.

For this Valentines Special, charcuterie items and gourmet desserts will be available (although not dinner-size portions), as well as complimentary wine and soft drinks. BYOB is accepted; bottles must be left with the bartender for pouring. Table seating will be for 2 or up to 12.

Fundraiser price (this date only):

  • $65 general
  • $55 senior
  • $25 college
  • Private table for 2, $150
