• Holiday Concert to Benefit Hillcrest Educational Centers 12/08/2010
Hillcrest Educational Centers is presenting Matt Cusson & Friends in concert at the Colonial Theatre just in time for the holidays.
The benefit concert, Home with Hillcrest for the Holidays, is at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15th. Pittsfield native Matt Cusson, and special guest Broadway star Shoshana Bean will perform favorite holiday songs along with special selections from Cusson's celebrated self-titled debut album and a few new songs not yet heard performed live.
Hillcrest President Gerard Burke said, "We were elated to hear of his generous offer to come home for the holidays and bring Hillcrest the gift of a benefit concert. We hope everyone will pause during this busy holiday to enjoy Matt's incredible talent."
Cusson toured Europe for three months with the "Man In The Mirror" Tribute to Michael Jackson Tour, which ended in August to rave reviews. His multiple- award winning song, "One of Those Nights," was released through Spectra Records digitally this month and the street date is set for February 8, 2011. The new re-mastered version of the song includes full orchestra with string arrangement by Bill Meyers, who is best known for his work with Michael Jackson, Madonna, Earth Wind and Fire and more. Cusson has played with Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Christina Aguilera and many more and is currently on tour with Brian McKnight.
