Something about pianists: Harry Connick Jr.

Bookmark and Share

The hits keep on coming at the soon-to-open Durham Performing Arts Center. The DPAC's latest booking, according to Pollstar, is Harry Connick Jr. The Crescent City crooner-pianist-heartthrob-cellphone pitchman will play the DPAC on Dec. 17 -- a return visit to the Triangle after his June 2007 performance in Cary.

Meanwhile, R&B pianist John Legend's Dec. 13 DPAC show goes on sale Saturday.

Excellent Performer

I have seen Harry Connick Jr once - he is phenomenal. I doubt there is an instrument that he doesn't play amazingly well. Translated: He can just about play any instrument that is given to him.
