Musical theatre star Kerry Ellis will join Steinway pianist and singer Dominic Ferris as his very special guest performer in Dominic Ferris: Me and My Piano at LIVE AT ZÉDEL on Monday 1 July at 7.00pm.
Kerry Ellis has fast become recognised as the leading lady of West End musicals from her starring roles in London and on Broadway. She has also achieved chart-topping success as a recording artist signed to Universal Decca with her debut album Anthems. Kerry will perform two exclusive numbers, to be revealed on the night.
As previously announced, Dominic will be “in conversation with” special guest BBC Radio 2 producer, writer and director, Anthony Cherry during the show. Dominic will ask Anthony about his work producing Friday Night is Music Night and the annual BBC Proms in the Park with the BBC Concert Orchestra, as well as exclusive broadcasts including They Write The Songs with Barry Manilow and Tim Rice’s American Pie.
Classical cross-over singer, and founder member of The Ida Girls, Georgi Mottram, will join Dominic to perform a special medley of songs by the Sherman Brothers. Me and My Piano will draw on a wide variety of Dominic’s musical influences including George Gershwin, Billy Joel and Elton John, with some surprises along the way.
Dominic studied piano performance at the Royal College of Music and he has since built an international reputation as a live performer and regular recording artist at Abbey Road Studios. His collaborations with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra have sold over 3 million albums worldwide. He has performed on, and provided orchestrations for, six top ten albums
since 2015, all recorded at Abbey Road Studios. He has recently worked with Michael Ball on his latest release Coming Home To You, reaching No.1 in the UK album chart. Dominic joined the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra as assistant musical director and pianist for the Elvis Presley: If I Can Dream UK arena tour and Memphis Symphony Orchestra for the USA anniversary tour, with a performance at Graceland with Priscilla Presley for the Elvis 40th Anniversary Celebrations.
Dominic regularly tours around the world with his piano duo The Piano Brothers. Endorsed by Steinway & Sons, The Piano Brothers (Dominic Ferris and Elwin Hendrijanto) are a cutting-edge live act creating their own arrangements for two pianos. Their recent collaboration with the London Symphony Orchestra will see a new album release in October 2019.
