Meet Michael Feinstein

Michael Feinstein headlines J Live at the Gordon April 8

When Michael Feinstein moved to California at the age of 20, he went to a psychic to receive some life’s direction. A waiter at a piano bar where he was playing had suggested he do so.

“I had never been to a psychic,” he says, “And I figured $25, what the heck?”

The psychic told him that in the future he’d be singing music and be known as much for the way he “set up” songs, in addition to the way he’d be singing them. That’s exactly what Feinstein is doing today.

“Someone fell out and they needed someone to do a show,” Feinstein recalls.  This was the first time he did a show where the...

Internationally-acclaimed dancer and choreographer Roni Koresh and his troupe of dancers perform at The Gordon Center February 16.

Roni was encouraged by many to pursue dance professionally, and it quickly became not only a career path, but a true passion.
