- 2018 Season
Presented in cooperation with The Zipper Junction Project.
The Pocono Mountains Music Festival is thrilled to present its new Artistic Director live in concert at The Cooperage. We are excited about this new partnership with The Cooperage and look forward to bringing future programming to this venue.
In the middle of New York City, in the heart of Times Square, sits The Brill Building, home to songwriters Carole King, Neil Sedaka, Lieber & Stoller, Neil Diamond, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill, among others. The songs they wrote changed the sound of popular music and became some of the most iconic songs of all time. “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do,” “Where the Boys Are,” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” all came from the famed music factory. Multi-award winning vocalist Scott Coulter takes you on a journey into the music -and the stories-of the singers and the songs that defined a generation.
“One of the best things that can happen to a songwriter is to have his or her material interpreted by Scott Coulter. It’s not just Scott’s amazing vocal instrument, but how he uses it to paint vivid pictures and evoke complex emotions.”
– Stephen Schwartz, Academy Award and Grammy-winning composer
*Pre-Festival Special Event tickets are not included in the 2018 Festival Package.
The Festival’s Artistic Director, SCOTT COULTER, has received five MAC Awards (Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs), five Bistro Awards and two Nightlife Awards for Outstanding Vocalist for his work in cabaret. He has performed at most of NYC’s top rooms including Birdland, Feinstein’s/54 Below, The Oak Room at the Algonquin, and Feinstein’s at The Regency where he spent a record-setting eight months performing the revue 11 O’CLOCK NUMBERS AT 11 O’CLOCK which he also co-created, directed and musically arranged. His self-titled debut CD won the 2003 MAC Award for Outstanding Recording and was chosen as the best recording of the year by TheatreMania and Cabaret Scenes magazines. Scott was director and star of A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE SYMPHONIC CONCERT in its world premiere with the Baltimore Symphony and reprised his performance in the Emmy-nominated PBS production which premiered in December 2013. He was an Emmy nominee himself for his performance in American Song at NJPAC.
