Sixteen-time Grammy® Award-winning musician, composer and producer David Foster and acclaimed singer, television, and Broadway star Katharine McPhee are joining forces and bringing their show to the Schuster Center! This intimate show with the powerhouse duo will be packed with David’s hits – from Chicago, Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé, and others – as well as McPhee’s biggest songs from “American Idol,” “Smash,” and Waitress. Plus, they’ll throw in some personal favorites! If you’re a lover of great music and great vocals, you won’t want to miss it!

David Foster is one of the most illustrious composers of our time. With 16 Grammy® Awards, including three for Producer of the Year, an Emmy Award, a Golden Globe, and three Oscar® nominations for Best Original Songs, Foster has earned a reputation as a keen spotter of new talent, playing a key role in the discovery and career launches of Celine Dion, Josh Groban, and Michael Bublé.

He has created hit songs for a diverse array of artists including Barbra Streisand; Celine Dion; Whitney Houston; Michael Jackson; Madonna; Andrea Bocelli; Michael Bublé; Josh Groban; Chicago; Rod Stewart; Stevie Wonder; Earth, Wind and Fire; Tony Braxton; Natalie Cole; Michael Bolton; Seal; Chaka Khan; Kenny Rogers; Dolly Parton; Hall Oates; Brandy; ’N Sync; Boz Scaggs; and Gloria Estefan.

Katharine McPhee is one of a handful of artists who takes the lead in a career that includes film, television, Broadway, recording and touring.
