A number of press outlets have compared Tony DeSare, an up-and-coming piano whiz, singer and composer, to Harry Connick Jr, Michael Bublé and Jamie Cullum.
The New York-based musician performs classic American standards but also writes his own music and plays with a swinging piano style. In addition to being a talented player and singer, DeSare has looks and charisma.
Tonight at 8 at Severance Hall, he'll accompany the Cleveland POPS Orchestra
as it runs through a number of tunes from piano legends such as Elton John, Ray Charles, Billy Joel and more. This will be DeSare’s first live performance in Cleveland. Tickets range from $21 to $95. (Johnny Cook)
