Sarasota, FL (Sept. 14, 2015) – Spend A Very Special Evening with Josh Groban. The internationally renowned singer, songwriter, and actor’s baritone voice has taken the world by storm ever since his double-platinum debut self-titled album in 2001. His follow-up album “Closer” went 5-times platinum and the trend continues to this day. His tour, Stages, at the Van Wezel on February 28, 2016, is a unique musical event featuring songs from the world’s greatest musicals. In serendipitous fashion, Josh Groban is also an avid arts education philanthropist, making him the perfect star for the Van Wezel Foundation Gala which helps support the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, its educational initiatives and programing.
