Embassy Theatre to host Tony Bennett

Posted: Friday, October 25, 2019

Embassy Theatre and Honeywell Entertainment (part of the Honeywell Foundation) are partnering, with the support of Parkview Health, to bring legendary musician Tony Bennett to the stage in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

With worldwide record sales in the millions, and dozens of platinum and gold albums to his credit, Bennett will draw audiences near and far with his legendary vocals and charming stage presence on November 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Embassy Theatre.

“We’re excited to offer outstanding entertainment in partnership with the Honeywell Foundation,” said Kelly Updike, president & CEO of Embassy Theatre, “Combining our staffing, experience, resources and reputations will enrich our region.”

Embassy Theatre and the Honeywell Foundation are working together to enhance artistic offerings within the region. Both organizations are involved in the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership (NEIRP) founded in 2006 to collaboratively “increase business investment, build our community, and market our region to the world.” This “stronger together” philosophy creates greater opportunities for all involved, ultimately making the 11-county region a more attractive place to live and visit.

“Our goal is to bring the best in entertainment to our region, and this partnership is a perfect opportunity to do that,” said Tod Minnich, CEO of the Honeywell Foundation. “It started as a conversation among leaders – how can we combine and leverage our resources to accomplish shared goals?”

Tony Bennett’s performance is made possible by the sponsorship of Parkview Health.

“We are honored to support the collaborative work of Embassy Theatre and the Honeywell Foundation,” said Rick Henvey, COO of Parkview Health, “We fully believe in our region and providing incredible arts and cultural opportunities for our co-workers, patients, and the communities we serve.”

Bennett’s performance is just one example of how Embassy Theatre and the Honeywell Foundation are collaborating to expand arts and cultural experiences regionally. The two recently partnered to host Criss Angel, and in the future will host Aaron Lewis on November 7 and Mystery Science Theater 3000 on November 8 at Embassy Theatre.
