The New York Pops celebrates its 34th birthday with a grand gala evening honoring Tony Award winners Kelli O'Hara and Bartlett Sher, whose collaborations over the last decade have received wide acclaim and whose individual careers represent pinnacles of achievement in the world of theater. This concert celebrates the multiyear partnership between the actress and stage director and brings together artists from the stage and screen in their honor.
The event begins at 7pm with a concert at Carnegie Hall featuring a spectacular lineup of guest artists under the baton of music director Steven Reineke. The performance will include appearances by Broadway stars Danny Burstein, Ruthie Ann Miles, Laura Osnes, and Paulo Szot, as well as compositions by Jason Robert Brown and Nico Muhly. The concert will also feature 20 students from the New York Pops' Kids on Stage music education program and Camp Broadway Kids. Following the concert, a black-tie dinner dance will be held at the elegant Mandarin Oriental, New York.
