Steven Pasquale, Brian d'Arcy James, and other stage regulars will also perform at the Carnegie Hall celebration.
Additional performers have been announced for the upcoming New York Pops gala honoring Tony Award winners and frequent onstage collaborators Kelli O'Hara and director Bartlett Sher. The May 1 concert, celebrating the New York Pops' 34th birthday, will be held at Carnegie Hall with a black-tie dinner dance following at the Mandarin Oriental New York.
With music direction by Steven Reineke, the evening will feature performances by Matthew Broderick, Brian d'Arcy James, Adam Kantor, Steven Pasquale, and Chris Sullivan alongside the previously announced Danny Burstein, Ruthie Ann Miles, Laura Osnes, and Paulo Szot, as well as compositions by Jason Robert Brown and Nico Muhly. Twenty students from the orchestra's Kids on Stage program will also perform.
O'Hara earned a Tony Award in 2015 for her leading performance in Sher's Lincoln Center revival of The King and I. She earned additional nominations for her performances in Sher's productions of The Bridges of Madison County, South Pacific, and The Light in the Piazza. The evening at Carnegie Hall will bring together artists from the stage and screen to celebrate the multiyear partnership between the actor and stage director.
