On May 22, Craig Meyer will present “Almost Elton John.” Meyer, whose credits include appearances on film, television and Broadway will present a rousing tribute to Elton John. Craig is noted for his singing ability and amazing artistry at the piano. Barry Manilow says, “Craig A. Meyer is one of the most talented people I have ever worked with. He can do anything!”
Craig says, “Throughout my busy career, I was repeatedly approached by people who thought I had a striking resemblance to Elton John and who also thought I had an uncanny ability to sound like the rock and roll legend. Eventually, I was persuaded to expand my repertoire and I began impersonating Elton John.
Craig Meyer’s strong vocals, looks and amazing talent at the piano have every audience remembering when rock and roll was young! Come out and hear him perform all your favorites such as “Sun go Down on Me,” “Crocodile Rock,” and “Candle in the Wind” – and lots more! This isn’t just nostalgia, however. It’s today! It’s fresh! And it’s LIVE on stage!
Meyer has been in all areas of the entertainment business, making strong impressions in theater, film, television and music. On Broadway, he created the role of Clinton Badger in MGM’s classic Meet Me in St. Louis and toured nationally in Cats as Skimbleshanks; The Red Caboose in Starlight Express and Mike Nulty in Irvin Berlin’s White Christmas.
On May 8, The Michael O’Neal Singers, a symphonic chorus of 140 auditioned voices, will perform at the Terraces amphitheater. Since its inception in 1989, The Michael O’Neal Singers organization has established itself as one of the premier symphonic choruses in the Southeastern United States.
Director and founder Michael O’Neal says, “Recognizing that music is essential to the human spirit, the purpose of The Michael O’Neal Singers is to enrich the quality of life in our community through performance of choral selections that engages the audience, challenges the singers and is rewarding for all. In seeking to provide a variety of musical experiences in its concerts, MOS programs have featured nationally known soloists and guest artists as well as collaborations with other arts organizations. Choral programming includes classical masterworks with orchestral accompaniment, sacred and secular music of the Western European tradition, music from other cultures around the globe and choruses from opera, Broadway and movies.”
The full chorus has 11 recordings to its credit and has performed in some of the most notable venues in the world, receiving high accolades for artistic excellence and crowd-pleasing programming. These venues include Carnegie Hall in New York; the historic St. Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland and St. Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey in London, plus the Parisian landmarks of Notre Dame and Sacre Coeur. In addition, performances of The Michael O’Neal Singers are frequently played on Atlanta’s classical music radio station WABE-90.1 FM and Georgia
