Ramsey Lewis to headline benefit gala
on Friday, April 13 at The Sheldon

Pianist Ramsey Lewis is returning to St. Louis next year to headline the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries' annual benefit gala at 8:30 p.m., Friday, April 13.

Lewis (pictured), an NEA Jazz Master who's known for groove-oriented hits from "The In Crowd" to "Sun Goddess" and more, will perform a program featuring his interpretations of the music of the Beatles, including songs such as “And I Love Her” and “A Hard Day’s Night,” plus some favorites from his own extensive catalog.

Lewis last played in St. Louis in November 2015 for The Sheldon's "ArtSounds" benefit. His most recent recording is 2011's Taking Another Look on the Hidden Beach label.

Tickets for the benefit gala are on sale now, starting at $500, and can be purchased by calling The Sheldon at 314-533-9900. Gala tickets include pre-concert cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, dinner, preferred concert seating, complimentary valet parking and a tax deduction. Proceeds from the event will benefit the concerts, gallery exhibitions and educational programs of the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries.

Concert-only tickets will be $45 orchestra, $40 front balcony, $35 rear balcony, and will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. Friday, March 2 via The Sheldon's website and from MetroTix.
