Spend an Unforgettable Valentine's with Natalie Cole!

A Special Event with the Nashville Symphony That's the Perfect Way to Celebrate With Your Valentine!

The unforgettable Natalie Cole will be appearing with the Nashville Symphony to celebrate Valentine's Day in two very special concerts on Friday, February 11th and Saturday, February 12th. Both shows start at 8pm at TPAC's Jackson Hall.

As the daughter of a musical legend, Natalie Cole has music in her blood. She makes any song her own with a remarkable combination of sass, sensitivity, and soul. Cole nurtures the essence of a song, but still puts her individual stamp on things. Natalie has found success on her own terms, having over thirty charted singles and winning several Grammy awards.

Her latest album, Ask a Woman Who Knows, is full of romantic and soulful music. It's a perfect indicator of Cole's graceful talent of singing the song of love. "The music on this album is very romantic and reminds me of what my husband and I have in our relationship," she says. Cole uniquely interprets songs and brings all of the tunes on the album to life. Natalie Cole reaches out to people through her music and shares the magic of love. The album also includes a duet with labelmate Diana Krall.

With all the talk of love on her latest album, it's no wonder why Natalie Cole will be performing with the Nashville Symphony on the weekend before Valentine's Day. She shines on every song and finds a way to connect not only

to her listeners, but to the music she handpicked to record. The romantic tone of her latest album sets the standard for the concerts with the Nashville Symphony.

There will be two concerts, one on Friday, February 11th and another on Saturday, February 12th. Both concerts begin at 8pm at Jackson Hall, located at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.
