Love is in the air.

Jason Danieley will present Romantic Notions at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in Long Island City on Sunday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m. And as it is part of the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert Series, the Broadway star will perform for free.

A Triple Threat (actor, singer, dancer), Danieley has had lead dramatic roles in “Chicago,” “The Full Monty,” “Candide,” “Curtains,” and “Next to Normal” on the Great White Way. He has also shared the stage with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, Boston Pops, New York Philharmonic, New York Pops, and LA Philharmonic.

In his Romantic Notions show, the St. Louis native croons about love in many genres. In fact, here is a partial list of some of the planned songs (subject to change): “All of Me,” “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head,” “As Long As She Needs Me,” “Night And Day,” “Time After Time,” “With a Song In My Heart,” and “You, You, You.”

Danieley was described as “the most exquisite tenor on Broadway” by The New York Times. In other words, he hits the high notes. Plus, he favors a warm stage presence, often wearing tuxedos and sharing anecdotes between ditties. He wants the audience to believe in love.

Joseph Thalken, a multiple award-winning composer and National Endowment for the Arts grantee, will provide piano accompaniment and musical direction.

Carnegie Hall has offered free concerts at community venues throughout New York City for more than 40 years. In Queens, the program will present the Japanese drumming collective Soh Daiko at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center on March 24, 2018. The multi-member brass ensemble Hungry March Band will be at the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on May 6, 2018. The other local shows are Blues band Matuto at the Queens Public Library’s Flushing branch on May 12, 2018, and the eclectic party group Red Baraat at Flushing Town Hall on June 8, 2018.

Editor’s note: The venue is located inside LaGuardia Community College at 31-10 Thomson Ave. However, it might be easier to use the alternate entrance at Building E on 47th Avenue and Van Dam Street.
