The Philly Pops will put you in a “New York State of Mind” as we present the music of Billy Joel, one of America’s most beloved singer-songwriters of all times. The Foundation of MorrisHall/St. Lawrence, Inc. is pleased to welcome the Philly Pops, with guest vocalist Michael Cavanaugh and Conductor Stuart Chafetz performing “The Music of Billy Joel” on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 7:30 pm at the Trenton War Memorial. Mr. Cavanaugh, a charismatic performer, musician, and actor was handpicked by Mr. Joel to play the lead in the Broadway musical Movin’ Out, and Maestro Chafetz has performed with many orchestras throughout the country, as well as renowned artists such as Roberta Flack, Marvin Hamlisch, Bernadette Peters, and many others. The concert includes heartwarming favorites like Scenes From an Italian Restaurant, Only the Good Die Young, Just the Way You Are, and My Life. The fun continues with chart-topping hits by artists who directly influenced Billy Joel, including songs like Great Balls of Fire, Johnny B. Goode, and Pinball Wizard.
The concert will benefit Morris Hall, with St. Mary’s Assisted Living, Grace Garden Memory Care and St. Joseph’s Skilled Nursing Center, and St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center, a fully accredited, not-for-profit, physical rehabilitation hospital. The proceeds will be used to provide charity care to the patients and residents of the facility, as well as benefit students in the greater Mercer County area.
