Imagine Kelli O’Hara, Matthew Morrison and Steven Reineke on the same stage!
That’s what’s in store on December 19 and 20, 2014 at 8:00 PM, when The New York Pops will present an evening full of holiday cheer at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage featuring Tony, Emmy and two-time Golden Globe nominee, Matthew Morrison, and five-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara. The orchestra will also be joined by Judith Clurman’s Essential Voices USA. Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke will lead the concert, which will include festive classics like “Carol of the Bells,” “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” and “Winter Wonderland,” plus some of the Broadway’s most beloved musical numbers.
“Our annual holiday program is one of our favorite traditions. It’s a time for loved ones to come together and celebrate the season through music” says Steven Reineke, Music Director of The New York Pops. “This year, we’re thrilled to be joined by two immensely talented friends—Kelli O’Hara and Matthew Morrison—who will have their long-awaited reunion on one of New York’s most beloved stages. We couldn’t ask for a greater gift!”
The New York Pops will perform a special holiday Family Concert on Sunday, December 22, 2014 at 2:00 PM. Based on the iconic television special “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” this staged concert performance brings Rudolph, Santa and their friends to life through original choreography by director/choreographer Liza Gennaro, as performed by dancers from New York Theatre Ballet. In his debut with The New York Pops, Broadway actor John Bolton (Spamalot, Contact, Titanic) will narrate the classic Christmas tale, with additional characters voiced by Scot Cahoon, Rory Kulz, Bobby Underwood and students from TADA! Youth Theater. Judith Clurman’s Essential Voices USA will join The New York Pops to perform Johnny Marks’ beloved score.
More to look forward to for the orchestra’s 32nd season continuing on Friday, March 13, 2015, 8:00PM with One Night Only: Sutton Foster, with the two-time Tony Award-winning star of Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes in her solo debut at Carnegie Hall.
