On November 13, 2015 at 8:00PM, The New York Pops, led by Music Director Steven Reineke, will continue its 33rd season at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage with Sophisticated Ladies, featuring Montego Glover, Capathia Jenkins, and Sy Smith. The concert commemorates the centennial year of the birth of Billie Holiday and also celebrates other groundbreaking icons of American popular song, from Ella Fitzgerald to Sarah Vaughan to Dinah Washington.

“Sophisticated Ladies is going to be an absolute knockout of a concert,” said Music Director Steven Reineke. “We’ve never done anything quite like it, and I know that Montego, Capathia, and Sy, alongside our fantastic 78-piece orchestra, will bring the house down again and again. This one is definitely a concert not to miss.”

The New York Pops’ 33rd season continues on Friday, December 18 and Saturday, December 19, 2015, 8:00PM at Carnegie Hall with “It’s Christmas Time in the City,” featuring Tony Award nominees Stephanie J. Block and Brian d’Arcy James, as well as Essential Voices USA, led by Music Director Judith Clurman. The concert will help to make the season bright with a selection of holiday favorites.

Tickets are available at the Carnegie Hall Box Office, 154 West 57th Street, by calling CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800, or by visiting the Carnegie Hall website, carnegiehall.org
