The Pizzarelli Family Concert

Saturday, January 18, at 7:00 pm

 

Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

Sold Out! - A benefit concert by a remarkable musical family.

We are extremely fortunate to have world-renowned guitarist and singer John Pizzarelli, Broadway singer and actress, Jessica Molaskey and their daughter singer/songwriter , Maddie Pizzarelli performing together as a benefit for Arts on the Lake.

 

 

John has been hailed by the Boston Globe for "reinvigorating the Great American Songbook and re-popularizing jazz." The Toronto Star pegged him as "the genial genius of the guitar," and the Seattle Times saluted him as "a rare entertainer of the old school." Established as one of the prime contemporary interpreters of the Great American Songbook, Pizzarelli has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antonio Carlos Jobim and The Beatles. His themed shows suggest there is no limit to Pizzarelli's imagination or talent.

 

Jessica Molaskey is a veteran of a dozen Broadway shows including the revival of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Sunday in the Park with George, which was nominated for nine Tony Awards. She has appeared in A Man of No Importance at Lincoln Center, Parade (directed by Hal Prince), Dream, Tommy, Crazy for You, Les Misérables, City of Angels, Chess, Cats and Oklahoma! She also played the role of Marie in The Encores critically acclaimed production of The Most Happy Fella at City Center.  Ms. Molaskey has five, critically acclaimed, solo c.d.s and has performed in concert from Lincoln Center to Carnegie and Disney Hall to the Montreal and Monterey Jazz festivals. In February she performed her critically acclaimed solo concert, Portraits of Joni Mitchell, as part of Lincoln Centers American Songbook series at The Allen Room.

 

Daughter Maddie has continued the family tradition and has become an accomplished singer/songwriter. Currently a student at Brown University she has grown up surrounded by generations of musicians.

 

John and Jessica often perform together and have hosted the noted music radio show, Radio Deluxe, since 2002. A New York Times review noted , “The ability to infuse pop and jazz with a Chekhovian wisdom about life’s ups and downs is the special gift of John Pizzarelli and Jessica Molaskey, long-married musical partners whose work gets deeper each year.”

 

For the past nine years she and her husband, John Pizzarelli have enjoyed a two month sold-out engagement at the Café Carlyle in New York.
