2016-10-14 That Mancini Magic imageListen to the moving music of Moon River, The Days Of Wine & Roses, Charade, Peter Gunn, The Pink Panther, Baby Elephant Walk, Dear Heart, Romeo & Juliet, and more! Henry Mancini and his orchestra set new standards in musical romance and music of the movies. One after another, his songs won Oscars and the hearts of a worldwide audience. Even today, children laugh with The Pink Panther and the Baby Elephant Walk; lovers dream to the sound of Moon River and remember The Days of Wine and Roses; and Peter Gunn fills the air in cool jazz clubs. Henry Mancini's imprint is lasting and vital. And now Cecil Welch, Mancini's solo trumpeter for 20 years, and the renowned pianist Mac Frampton bring great music to the stage in an intimate outpouring of cherished melodies. Supported by The Moon River Orchestra, an ensemble of violins, saxophone, and rhythm, That Mancini Magic! is an enchanting voyage through the inspired melodies that earned Henry Mancini the stature as one of America's greatest composers.
