Jim Brickman continues to wow audience members year after year with his intimate and beloved holiday tour. Performing live in one spectacular concert, Jim Brickman On A Winter’s Night, presented by Lite 100.5 WRCH, arrives in Hartford at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts’ Mortensen Hall on Sunday, December 2nd at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets are available for Jim Brickman On A Winter’s Night from $35 to $75 by calling 860-987-5900, online at bushnell.org or The Bushnell Box Office located at 166 Capitol Ave, Hartford, CT.

The best-selling piano artist and his special guests will delight the audience with classic and contemporary holiday music, fan favorites and songs from Brickman’s latest CD, Believe. Dazzling solo piano, vibrant vocals, warmth, and humor make this an ideal winter’s night celebration.

Brickman has revolutionized solo piano with his pop-style instrumentals and star-studded vocal collaborations. With over 7 million records sold, Brickman’s signature songwriting style, original music, and unique performances have also brought him six Gold and Platinum selling albums, 30 charted adult radio hits, Grammy nominations in 2003 & 2009, two SESAC “Songwriter of the Year” awards, a Canadian Country Music Award and a Gospel Music Association Dove Award.

His best-known compositions include the chart-toppers “Valentine,” “The Gift,” “Love of My Life,” “Simple Things” and “Peace.” In January 2012, Jim commanded the top three spots on the Top 10 of Billboard’s New Age chart for his albums Love, Romanza and All is Calm. His albums feature collaborations with such noted vocalists as Martina McBride, Gerald Levert, Lady Antebellum, Matt Giraud, Michael W. Smith, Kenny Loggins, Carly Simon, Herb Alpert, Collin Raye, Michael Bolton, Sara Evans, Donny Osmond, and Olivia Newton-John.

A native of Cleveland, Brickman began playing piano at the age of five and studied music at the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music. He founded his own advertising music company in 1980, writing commercial jingles for such advertisers as McDonald’s, Pontiac and Kellogg’s. Brickman has been a strong supporter of PBS, starring in four TV concert specials: Beautiful World (2009), Jim Brickman Live from Disney’s Magic Kingdom (2005), My Romance—An Evening with Jim Brickman (2000) and Love Songs and Lullabies (2002).

Other artistic endeavors include a popular weekly radio show, Your Weekend with Jim Brickman; two best-selling books, Simple Things and Love Notes; debuts at Carnegie Hall and the White House; and international touring from Spain to Thailand. His Jim Brickman Cruises have become an annual hot-ticket event. Brickman lends a hand to many charitable foundations for children, including Autism Speaks and UNICEF. A scholarship was recently established in his name at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
