"To me, someone who writes really good songs is Randy Newman… not that many people in Randy's class." —Bob Dylan

Join us for a spectacular season opener—a concert and conversation with songwriter, singer, pianist and composer Randy Newman. A performance by this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member runs the gamut from heartbreaking to satirical. His unforgettable songs include "I Think It's Going to Rain Today," "Louisiana 1927," "Rednecks," "Sail Away," and "You've Got a Friend in Me." The composer of a long list of notable film scores—The Natural, Awakenings, Ragtime, all three Toy Story pictures, Seabiscuit, James and the Giant Peach, A Bug's Life and many others—Newman's many accolades include 2 Oscar®s, 3 Emmy®s, and 6 GRAMMY®s.

Although this performance is SOLD OUT at Ticketmaster, a limited number of RUSH tickets will be available at the Library, at no cost, beginning 2 hours before each performance. Patrons are strongly encouraged to try for a RUSH ticket at the door, between 6:00 pm and concert time (8:00 pm for this concert). Due to no-shows and returned tickets, some seats are ALWAYS available for sold out performances at curtain. RUSH tickets are offered on a space-available basis. Seats are not guaranteed.

"The first, and perhaps the best, of modern pop's great storytellers." – The Observer
