Kendall Schmidt to Perform at PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth” Concert
How stinking cute are Kendall Schmidt and his puppy? Love it!
Today, some big news was announced for Kendall and Heffron Drive. The “Parallel” singer has been asked to play PBS’ “A Capitol Fourth,” America’s Independence Day Celebration.
The 90-minute concert will be broadcast live from the West Lawn of the United States Capitol with hundreds of thousands in attendance and millions more at home on PBS. Heffron Drive will share the stage with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Frankie Valli; multi-platinum recording artist and actress Jordin Sparks; country music superstar Sara Evans; Grammy Award-winning music legend Patti Labelle; five-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Michael McDonald; five-time Tony Award nominee and Broadway star Kelli O’Hara; five-time Academy Award-winning composer John Williams and the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Jack Everly. The event will be hosted by two-time Emmy Award-winning television personality Tom Bergeron (“Dancing with the Stars”).
Kendall has something very special planned to honor the enormity of the event – Heffron Drive will perform alongside The National Symphony Orchestra in the presentation of “Parallel” for a once in a lifetime experience.
“It is an incredible honor to be asked to play ‘A Capitol Fourth,’” Schmidt says. “The timing feels kismet as I embark on a new journey of my own with Heffron Drive, and I wanted to put together something extra special to commemorate the occasion. I have always wanted to perform with a symphony, and a hallmark event such as this is the perfect setting for something so grand. I hope everyone enjoys listening to the arrangement as much as I enjoyed creating it!”
