The Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra performs on the Reg Lenna stage for the first time with the spectacular Michael Cavanaugh in The Music of Billy Joel under the baton of CSO Principal Pops Conductor Stuart Chafetz! Michael was handpicked by Billy Joel to star in the hit Broadway musical Movin’ Out, for which he received both Tony and Grammy nominations in the lead role. Billboard has called him “The New Voice of the American Rock and Roll Songbook.” This show features hits like “My Life”, “Movin’ Out”, “Just the Way You Are” and “River of Dreams,” interspersed with Michael’s anecdotes of his time on Broadway and meeting Billy Joel.
