With piano-driven melodies, introspective lyrics, and a genuine everyman spirit, Californian singer-songwriter John Ondrasik, known by his hockey-inspired moniker Five for Fighting, writes deeply affecting songs in the tradition of Elton John and Billy Joel. After the September 11 attacks, millions found solace in his “Superman (It’s Not Easy),” which became a cherished anthem of American resilience. For this intimate evening, Ondrasik is joined high above Manhattan by a string quartet to perform beautifully arranged renditions of hits like “100 Years,” “Chances,” “The Riddle,” and other songs from his rich catalog.
