To See You is an album by the American artist Harry Connick Jr., released in 1997. It is an album of love songs, recorded with a symphony orchestra.
"The inspiration for this was a flight attendant, really," Connick says. He added, "She asked if I had any romantic records, and I thought maybe it was time to do a romantic album."
Connick toured the United States and Europe with a full symphony orchestra backing him and his piano in each city. As part of his tour, he played at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway, with his final concert of that tour in Paris being recorded for a St. Valentine's Day special on PBS in 1998.
