Songs featured includemusicfrom Jacksons early years to his mega hits like ABC, Ill Be There and Got To Be There through Beat It, Thriller, Rock With You, The Way You Make Me Feel and many, many more.

    Brent Havens joins the symphony again as the conductor for The Music of Michael Jackson. Havens has conducted the last two Music Of concerts at The Pavilion including The Music of The Eagles and The Music of Queen.

    We are again providing free mezzanine and lawn seating for all of our wonderful performing arts events, thanks to our generous sponsors. At all symphonies, guests are welcome to have a picnic in their seat or on the hill. Lawn chairs also are provided free at all performing arts events.

  • Berklee College of Music-trained arranger and conductor Brent Havens has written music for orchestras, feature films andvirtually every kind of television. His TV work includes movies for networks such as ABC, CBS and The Family Channel, commercials, sports music for networks such as ESPN and even cartoons. He worked with The Doobie Brothers and the Milwaukee Symphony, arranging

    and conducting the combined group for Harley Davidsons 100th An-niversaryBirthdayPartyFinaleattendedbymorethan150,000fans.

His latest endeavor is The Music of Michael Jackson.

    Crowned The Entertainer by Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton, on the E! reality TV series, James Delisco, has proven he is more than worthy of that title. After com-pleting his $1 million contract at the Las Vegas Hilton, where his show opened to rave reviews, Delisco continues to obtain critical acclaim in every market and ven-ue on his recent world-wide tour.

    An iconoclastic showroom performer with great energy, Delisco emanates old school charm with contemporary charisma. His handling of a song is so true to itself and to the purpose of music, to uplift and inspire, that a musical and entertainment revolution is only a matter of time for this enormously talented artist. Where classic qualitymeetsedgyrockandsoulstylewithundeniablestagepresence,he is the future of music and entertainment.

    Delisco creates a connection between artist and audience members whileushering inhis uniquenew sound throughhisoriginalmusic.Hehas crafted his own style of music he calls RaGaBaR, which is a synthesis of the elements of 20th century music such as rhythm and blues, gos-pel,rockandragtime.Asconfirmationofitsappealtoallgenerationsin its design and commitment to the celebration of energy and musical ethic, Delisco continually brings the audience to its feet, with standing ovations at every performance.

    On the threshold of major stardom, this polished young talent and elec-trifying performer returns to the U.S. from Berlin, Germany, the Venetian Casino in Macau and opening the new Sands Casino in Singapore. He plays to sold-out audiences everywhere he appears, which is a testa-ment to both the mystery and intrigue of Delisco.
