Join us for an exclusive evening that celebrates the Symphony's 2019/20 Season on Monday, February 17 at The Breakers Palm Beach. The Symphony's 18th Annual Gala features an elegant dinner, dancing, a live auction, and live music by Charles Calello with his 14 piece band and a Palm Beach Symphony String Quartet.
Proceeds from the evening benefit Palm Beach Symphony’s world-class music, education, and community outreach programs.
Charlie Calello is an American, singer, composer, conductor, arranger, and record producer. His track record of successfully collaborating with various artists to produce or arrange Billboard hit songs led to his nickname in the industry as the "Hit Man".
In the late 1950s, Calello was a member of Frankie Valli's group The Four Lovers, but left before the group was transformed into The Four Seasons. In 1962, he became the group's musical arranger. In 1965, he joined the Four Seasons' lineup as bassist. Calello departed the group, becoming a staff arranger/producer at Columbia Records. In 1968, he became an independent producer and arranger and a year later arranged Frank Sinatra's album Watertown, written by Bob Gaudio.
Calello will perform from his selection of 101 hit records live at our gala with his 14 piece band and award-winning singers Tomey Sellars and Joseph Leo Bwarie.
