A Holiday Performance with the Texas Boys Choir
3505 W. Lancaster Ave.
Danny Wright’s latest CD recently hit the market. It’s titled My Favorite Things and is available on iTunes.
His music can also be found on Spotify, Pandora, iTunes and iHeart Radio.
Renowned Fort Worth pianist Danny Wright is traveling back in time and he wants to bring us along for the trip.
Wright will perform with the Texas Boys Choir in “A Holiday Performance” Dec. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Scott Theater.
“It’s going to be a beautiful performance. They recorded one of my favorite albums with me called Merry Christmas,” said Wright, a Fort Worth native and graduate of Southwest High School and Texas Christian University.
The evening will also feature vocalist/guitarist Elizabeth Wills, also a Fort Worth native, and musicians from the Fort Worth Symphony. She will perform a few songs on her own, join Wright for a few, and then Wright, Wills and the Texas Boys Choir will present the finale of “Silent Night.” Wright said they may also be joined by some youngsters from the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts, to which some proceeds from ticket sales will be donated.
Wright said the evening will also be recorded on a DVD that could be aired later on PBS.
Wright, 54, was in the boys choir from ages 9-12. He began playing piano at age 4.
“I got to be on The Bob Hope Show” when he was in the boys choir, Wright said. “I met all those big stars.”
After the concert, Sweet Memories in Colleyville will donate a champagne reception.
Wright said the evening is also something of a celebration of his return to Fort Worth in November 2016 after playing the Smith Center in Las Vegas for six years. He said the move was a good one and that he’s thrilled to be back home.
“I don’t think I’ve been happier than now in my whole life,” he said. “It’s wonderful what they’ve done here.”
