Downtown Manhattan performing arts venue SubCulture has announced that performer Mykal Kilgore (Songs for a New World) will be the special guest for Jason Robert Brown's upcoming December 17 concert.

Said Brown in a statement: "I'm all set to ring in the holidays this year with one of the most explosively talented singers I've ever met, the unstoppable Mykal Kilgore, and a choir filled with some of my favorite voices in New York, singing insane arrangements of holiday standards, JRB classics, and new and weird tunes, all accompanied by my favorite musicians on Earth. A whole lot of joy while we pray for peace. Come join us!"

The December 17 concert marks not only Kilgore's return to the venue but also the fourth anniversary of SubCulture's collaboration with Brown, the composer of Broadway's The Bridges of Madison County, Honeymoon in Vegas, and more. Each performance incorporates an eclectic mix of material featuring music from Brown's career, along with new works in development. The series has also been host to an array of special guests, including Kelli O'Hara, Steven Pasquale, Norbert Leo Butz, Tom Kitt, Tony Danza, Laura Benanti, Cynthia Erivo, Tituss Burgess, Lena Hall, LaChanze, Shaina Taub, Megan Hilty, Eden Espinosa, Norm Lewis, Sierra Boggess, Betsy Wolfe, Shoshana Bean, Philippa Soo, Justin Guarini, Stephen Schwartz, Sutton Foster, Gavin Creel, Jeremy Jordan, and more.
