Gregory Porter makes his Colorado Symphony debut for an evening of soulful jazz honoring the legendary Nat King Cole and more. Two-time GRAMMY Award®—Winner for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Porter is a rising star and a dazzling live performer. For Porter, the influence of Nat King Cole on his life and music runs deep, a through-line that reaches back into some of his earliest childhood memories, and culminates in his stunning fifth studio album Nat King Cole & Me, a heartfelt tribute to the legendary singer, pianist, and Capitol recording artist. Join us for an evening of soulful music that’ll leave you wanting more.

The running time of this performance is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. This includes one 20-minute intermission.

Christopher Dragon, conductor
Gregory Porter, vocalist
