Elliot Finkel is a pianist, conductor and composer of great magnitude and versatility. Not only is his six-foot plus stature commanding, but his unique talent bridges the gap between the classical and pop idioms.
Elliot has appeared on the great stages of the world including Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and the London Palladium. He has also performed three times at the White House. He has performed with symphony orchestras in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. (National), Baltimore, Dallas. He has served as the music director for Queens Pop Orchestra. Elliot has performed hundreds of recitals across the globe, both as a soloist, and together with his brother, Ian Finkel who is a xylophone virtuoso. Elliot also appeared on Broadway three times with Michael Feinstein, with Sid Caesar, and with Ian Finkel and their father, Fyvush Finkel.
Mr. Finkel’s concerts have become a favorite on cruise ships of the world. He has played and conducted for such diverse artists as Ginger Rogers, Milton Berle, Danny Thomas, Regis Philbin, and Theodore Bikel. He is also very proud of his eight-year association with the legendary tenor, Jan Peerce.
Mr. Finkel’s musical Finkel’s Follies (starring his Dad) was a great favorite in the early 90’s both in Los Angeles and New York. His new musical The Loves of George Sand will open this coming season in New York City.
