The New York Pops will return to Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York City on September 19 for a cabaret performance starring Tony nominees Montego Gloverand Joshua Henry. The night will be an intimate evening of dining and entertainment led by Music Director Steven Reineke as two of Broadway’s most talented stars perform some of their favorite tunes.
“The New York Pops annual cabaret evening is one of our most intimate and exciting events each year,” said Music Director Steven Reineke. “The event raises money for our vital music education programs, which reach thousands of New York City children each year. Montego and Joshua have both performed with the full orchestra at Carnegie Hall, and they are both absolutely stunning talents and extraordinarily kind people. I am so looking forward to hearing them up-close and personal with pared down arrangements, and I promise that everyone is going to have a great time.”
All proceeds will support The New York Pops’ PopsEd music programs, which reach over 4,000 New York City students each year.
