Having just opened in November 2014, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts has wasted no time bringing Orlando great performances! This beautiful new center will host everything from Broadway to ballet, from the Orlando Philharmonic to Sarah McLachlan, and pretty much everything in between.

This Friday, December 5th, tickets will be released for 3 upcoming major concerts: Jay Leno, Sarah McLachlan, & Idina Menzel!
Jay Leno will hit the stage on March 30, 2015 for one of his many U.S. comedy performances. As host of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” for more than 20 years, he helped make the show the consistent & uninterrupted ratings leader for late night. In addition, Leno is an Emmy Award winner & was recently installed in the Television Academy’s Broadcast Hall of Fame. Now, his newest venture combines television & his love for cars. “Jay Leno’s Garage” is viewed at Jaylenosgarage.com & has already won an Emmy Award as well as 2 additional nominations.
An Evening with Sarah McLachlan will be making a stop on March 24, 2015 as part of the “Shine On Tour” for her latest album. With this album, McLachlan explores her personal journey over the last 3 years of love, loss, and change. McLachlan has sold over 40 million albums worldwide as well as won 3 Grammy Awards and 8 Juno Awards (Canadian Music Awards). In addition, she founded the Lilith Fair tour which showcased female musicians and raised over $7 million for charities in 3 years. McLachlan also began a non-profit organization. The Sarah McLachlan School of Music provides free afterschool music education for at-risk kids who otherwise would have no access to music programming.
Idina Menzel brings her 2015 global concert tour to Orlando on July 15, 2015! Menzel will lead audiences, with her irresistible charm & unparalleled vocal prowess, through a journey of classic pop, musical theater favorites and her own personal musical catalogue.

Menzel also just released her first Christmas album Holiday Wishes which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Holiday Albums chart. She has also graced the large screen with appearances in Enchanted &, of course, Frozen. As the voice of Elsa in Disney’s Frozen, Menzel made history as the first Tony Award winner for acting to have a song in the Billboard Top 10 with the film’s Oscar-winning song “Let It Go.” Frozen has become the highest-grossing animated movie of all time.
