Chris Mann in Concert!  (Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 7:30)

In performance with the Long Bay Symphony Pops

Chris Mann certainly shined as a finalist on The Voice, but his star has risen even higher since the hit show’s second season. His debut full-length, Roads, introduced a whole new generation to the classical-pop genre and shot straight to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers Chart and Top 5 on Billboard’s Classical Chart. Upon its release, he gave numerous high-profile television performances, including playing for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama as part of TNT’s “Christmas In Washington” special, appeared on “The Today Show,” the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and “NBC’s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center Special.” Mann also released a holiday EP, Home For Christmas, which was sold exclusively at Walmart and hit No. 1 on the chain’s Best-Selling Albums List.

He kicked off 2013 with a performance on “Conan” and his very own PBS Special helmed by award-winning producer Ken Ehrlich. Airing this past March on PBS stations nationwide, “A Mann For All Seasons” featured special guest appearances by multi-platinum artist Martina McBride and Mindi Abair and is a re-creation of the Elvis Presley ’69 Comeback Special with Chris performing in a boxing ring on a Sony soundstage.

The aptly-titled Roads represents the culmination of a long and challenging journey for this gifted and dedicated young artist, who had been pushing forward against what had appeared to be overwhelming odds. The album boasts a wildly eclectic assortment of songs, ranging from Willie Nelson’s “Always on My Mind,” “Ave Maria,” Damien Rice’s “The Blower’s Daughter,” which features a special guest appearance by his “Voice” coach Christina Aguilera, and Paul Anka’s “My Way,” which was reworked by Anka specifically for Mann.

Chris will be available for a Meet & Greet prior to the performance on Saturday, October 19 for a minimum donation of $50 to the Long Bay Symphony. Limited availability on tickets.

The Long Bay Symphony continues its 24th Season on Sunday, January 29th from 4:00 – 6:00 in the Myrtle Beach High School Music and Arts Center, 3302 Robert Grissom Parkway, Myrtle Beach, SC.

Mahler’s “Titan” Symphony will  feature horn soloist David Jolley.

The late Romantic composer Gustav Mahler strove to embrace the entire world of human emotion in his symphonies.  Experience the tragedy and ultimate triumph in Mahler’s first symphonic essay, as well as music by Mahler contemporary Richard Strauss and early Romantic innovator Robert Schumann.

Maestro Charles Jones Evans states: “The symphonies of Gustav Mahler represent the pinnacle of Romantic period grandeur and extremes of emotion.  Mahler viewed his works as musical depictions of the entire world of human experience. The Symphony No. 1, his most popular and most frequently performed, takes the listener on a sonic/dramatic journey from delicate forest murmurs to lively peasant dances, from expressions of joy to comic irony, screams of existential pain, and ultimate triumph.”

With 79 musicians, the sheer force of this repertoire will be exciting for both seasoned symphony audiences and first time attendees.

Schumann                   Manfred Overture

                        Richard Strauss         Horn Concerto No. 1

                        Mahler                        Symphony No. 1 (“Titan”)
