You won’t find Dave Koz’s three shows in Nashville beginning May 24 listed on his website. He’s not the headliner, just a special guest. But Koz says his appearance with the Nashville Symphony is a culmination of a life-long dream as it’s his debut live performance with an orchestra.
The three performances are titled Mancini at the Movies and feature conductor Albert-George Schram and vocalist Monica Mancini. Mancini, the daughter of the late, famed composer Henry Mancini, will be performing songs that her father composed specifically for the movies. Two of those songs, “The Pink Panther” and “Moon River,” are featured on Koz’s At the Movies CD and will be performed by the saxophonist.
"To me, this is like a dream come true," says Koz. "This is what I want to do. I mean, you want to talk about doing movie music with an actual orchestra in a beautiful performing arts center. It doesn’t get any better than that, so I’m very excited this facet of my career."
