As the Pops returns to with a full 78-piece orchestra, Morrison will also be joined by a soon-to-be-announced special guest. The concert will also continue the expanded version of the orchestra’s Kids in the Balcony program, offering 1,000 children an opportunity to attend and learn about live music for free.
"I am beyond thrilled to return to the stadium — we had such a blast last summer, and I know that the orchestra and Matthew are going to knock it out of the park in July!" said music director Steven Reineke in a statement. "Matthew’s performances with us in December 2014 were absolutely electric. We played two sold-out nights at Carnegie Hall. I am glad he will bring his larger-than-life talent to join our full orchestra in this incredible venue."
