Eckart Preu, Conductor

Craig A. Meyer, Piano and Vocals

Long Beach Symphony is thrilled to present an evening of the greatest hits from the legendary Sir Elton John. Get ready to sing and dance the night away to songs that have been at the top of everyone’s playlist for the last five decades.

The Lobby doors will open at 6:30pm for our legendary indoor picnicking. Bring food, drinks, and dancing shoes for this amazingly fun event — and celebrate Pops Pride and the LGBTQ community.

Under the direction of Maestro Eckart Preu, and starring renowned Elton John tribute artist Craig A. Meyer on the piano and on vocals, the symphony will perform a number of Elton John and Bernie Taupin’s most beloved 1970s classics (Crocodile Rock, Bennie and the Jets, Honky Cat and Candle in the Wind), as well as Tony winning Broadway hits, including Can You Feel The Love Tonight from “The Lion King.”

This concert is generously sponsored by Dr. Allen and Charlotte Ginsburg
