Silversea Welcomes Acclaimed Recording Artists Paul Brown & Marc Antoine to Headline Music Series
(19 August 2013) Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises has tapped legendary contemporary
jazz guitarists Paul Brown and Marc Antoine to perform on two special "Music
under the Stars" voyages aboard its intimate, 540-guest Silver Spirit
unique music-themed sailings will each feature two concerts on stage in the
elegant Show Lounge, as well as an outdoor performance during a sail-away cocktail
party on the ship's pool deck (when departing Monte Carlo and St Barts), where
the artist will have a chance to meet and mingle with guests. Plus autographed
copies of the musician's latest CD will be delivered to each guest's suite.
Antoine will perform aboard Silver
Spirit's seven-day Mediterranean
cruise (#5334), sailing 2 November from Rome to Barcelona with calls in
Livorno, Monte Carlo, Marseille, Porto Mahon, and Palma de Mallorca.
Brown will entertain guests on Silver
Spirit's 10-day Caribbean
cruise (#5338), sailing roundtrip from Fort Lauderdale on 13 December. Destinations
include Tortola, St Maarten, St Barts, San Juan, Samana, and Grand Turk.
Ellen Bettridge, Silversea's
president of the Americas, said: "We're excited and honoured to have these two renowned artists
performing aboard our beautiful Silver
Spirit. I know our guests will enjoy an extraordinary music experience."
Antoine, whose career
is highlighted by numerous number-one hits on the contemporary jazz charts, has
performed with such music royalty as Sting, Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Cher,
Queen Latifah and others, and has composed and performed for six major movie
soundtracks. He tours regularly with contemporary jazz artists Dave Koz, Chris
Botti, and Jeff Lorber.
In expressing his
excitement about the upcoming voyage, Antoine said, "It will be great to
perform in the Mediterranean and visit my beloved Spain and France with music
lovers from around the world."
Double Grammy-winning Paul Brown has produced more
than 50 number-one hits on the contemporary jazz charts. The guitarist,
producer, and composer has worked on projects with such music legends as Al
Jarreau, George Benson, Patti Austin, Luther Vandross, Kirk Whalum, Boney
James, Larry Carlton, Rick Braun, and many others.
"I'm looking forward to spending a week with my fans, playing the music I
love in a great intimate setting, and making new friends," remarked Brown
about his upcoming cruise.
