John Williams, Julie Andrews Bring Music of the Movies to the Hollywood Bowl This Weekend
Concord Records recording artist and double-Grammy nominee Monica Mancini, daughter of famed film composer Henry Mancini and the notable studio singer Ginny O'Conner Mancini, has carved out an impressive career as a concert performer and recording artist, appearing with major symphony orchestras worldwide, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, New York Pops, Boston Pops, Dallas Symphony, Seattle Symphony and the BBC Concert Orchestra. To celebrate the release of the USPS Henry Mancini Commemorative Postage Stamp, Mancini kicked off an extensive 60-city tour, followed by sold-out concerts at Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Boston Symphony Hall and Tanglewood. Mancini also released the Billboard chart-topping and double Grammy-nominated album Ultimate Mancini featured some very special guest artists including Stevie Wonder, Take 6 and Tom Scott. On her latest release, I've Loved These Days on the Concord label, Mancini is paired once again with Stevie Wonder as well as BrIan Wilson, Jackson Browne, Take 6 and others performing iconic singer-songwriter songs from the 60's accompanied by full orchestra.
