The new show, produced by Grammy-nominated musician and producer Jim Brickman, brings back the enchanting music by the popular 1970’s brother and sister duo, Karen and Richard Carpenter. With the entire Knoxville Symphony Orchestra, directed by Resident Conductor James Fellenbaum, the show brings a star-studded cast of vocalists and musicians.
“The passion I feel creating and producing this show is a testament to the lyrics and the harmonies that made us fall in love with the Carpenters,” Brickman said.
