A diverse palette of musicians, comedians and entertainers are queued up for Dr. Phillips Center’s fifth full season, including bluegrass sensation Alison Krauss, rock legend Sammy Hagar, up-and-coming quartet The Four Italian Tenors and Orlando’s own Wayne Brady. Nine Broadway tours will also make a stop in Orlando, from Disney Aladdin and Mean Girls to newly announced Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, as part of the 2019/2020 FAIRWINDS Broadway in Orlando series!

“Programming our fifth season has really been a smooth, easy process, partly because we’ve been guided by year-over-year guest feedback,” said Dr. Phillips Center President and CEO Kathy Ramsberger.

“Our guests love to experience live music, especially by eclectic artists like Alison Krauss, who’ll make her Orlando debut at the Dr. Phillips Center this fall. And they love to laugh, so we’re presenting the insanely talented Wayne Brady.

“We’re also presenting a number of encore performances by artists who’ve done exceptionally well in this market, like Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater and The Beach Boys. We’re all in for a treat next season.”

The Jazz Orchestra at Dr. Phillips Center to be presented by Fifth Third Bank

Ramsberger is equally excited about The Jazz Orchestra at Dr. Phillips Center presented by Fifth Third Bank, which is set to perform four programs throughout the new season. The orchestra, curated exclusively for Dr. Phillips Center guests, is comprised of professional jazz musicians who travel from all over the country to play together under the direction of acclaimed bassist Rodney Whitaker.

“Orlando is a great city for jazz,” Ramsberger said. “Our community has a deep affinity for the genre and through The Jazz Orchestra, we’re excited to play even a small role in sustaining that appreciation over multiple generations.”

“We are very thrilled to be supporting The Jazz Orchestra at Dr. Phillips Center,” said Fifth Third Bank Orlando City President Greg Dryden. “The performing arts strategically align with Fifth Third’s core values.”

For the first time, the arts center is offering a full jazz subscription package that includes tickets to all four jazz orchestra performances; the subscription price is $200 inclusive of taxes and fees, a savings of 20% on the single-ticket price. A three-performance “flex subscription,” which saves buyers 15%, is available for $165. Subscriptions are on sale today and single tickets will go on sale at a later date.
