His repertoire of songs - classical, jazz and show times - have delighted audiences for over five decades. His performances have spanned the globe, accompanying some of the greatest artists of the Big Band era and the musical world: Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Dick Haymes, Glenn Miller, Frankie Laine, Rosemary Clooney, Kay Starr and Pat Boone! Theyve all benefited from the talent of the one world-class pianist and conductor, a man for all occasions, who knows how to entertain. He is Al Lerner. Al Lerner is a musical wonder. For decades, he has been writing and performing songs for people of all ages. His delightful melodies have captured the fancy of music lovers, performing the classic songs people remember: Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, and classic show tunes from Broadway to the movies. A show business veteran, Al has played in every major convert hall coast-to-coast, and then some. He has entertained at Carnegie Hall and even conducted a Royal Command Performance for the Queen of England. As a composer, he is just as prolific. He is the author of over 200 songs, among them, the closing theme song (So Until I See You) for Jack Paars Tonight Show, and for several classic motion pictures. Today, Al remains ever the showman. He performs at benefits, Big Band concerts, nightclubs and special engagements. He has been a featured act for several major cruise lines- including three Princess cruises, Sitmar, and Royal Viking, and continues to entertain audiences overseas. For music that entertains. For an evening of entertainment worth repeating, nobody does it like Al Lerner.
