On Monday, December 14 at 7:00 p.m. Carnegie presents Sting in his highly acclaimed concert Symphonicities in a one-night-only gala benefit concert with Orchestra of St. Luke’s conducted by Rob Mathes.
Symphonicities features Sting’s greatest hits reimagined for symphonic arrangement with orchestrations by Jorge Calandrelli, David Hart, Michel Legrand, Rob Mathes, Vince Mendoza, Steven Mercurio, Robert Sadin, and Nicola Tescari. Selections include fan-favorites such as “Roxanne,” “Next To You,” “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,” and “Every Breath You Take,” plus songs from his enduring solo career-“Englishman in New York,” “Fragile,” “Russians,” “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You,” “Fields of Gold,” and “Desert Rose.”
The concert marks Sting’s first time headlining a full performance at Carnegie Hall. He will also be joined by a quintet comprised of Dominic Miller (Sting’s longtime guitarist), Jo Lawry (vocalist), Ira Coleman (bassist), Joe Bonadio (percussionist), and Mike Ricchiuti (keyboards). All proceeds from the performance will benefit Carnegie Hall’s artistic and music education programs.
