The New York Pops, led by Music DirectorSteven Reineke, will launch its 34th season at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, celebrating the legacy and timeless works of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe.
In celebration of the 60th Anniversary of their landmark production of My Fair Lady, The New York Pops will highlight the songwriting team’s iconic collaborations from the Golden Age of Broadway, including selections from Camelot, Brigadoon, Gigi, and Paint Your Wagon.
Guest artists Colin Donnell and Laura Osnes of Broadway fame, alongside operatic baritone Nathan Gunn, will bring these legendary show tunes to life with the full 78-piece New York Pops. The orchestra and soloists will be joined by Judith Clurman’s Essential Voices USA.
“Lerner and Loewe wrote some of the greatest songs in the history of musical theater,” said Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke. “My Fair Lady defined musical theater for a generation or more, and the soaring melodies and clever lyrics are absolutely timeless. We have a stellar lineup of guest artists for this opening night concert – Colin, Nathan, and Laura all have incredible voices, and I am so proud that we will perform these tunes in the grandiose orchestrations that only The New York Pops can truly bring to life.”
“In addition, we are so pleased to be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of our Kids in the Balcony program this season! ” said Reineke. “Since it began in 1991, we have brought more than 37,000 students to Carnegie Hall free of charge.”
