With a voice that The New York Times describes as a "singularly thunderous baritone," Broadway leading man Brian Stokes Mitchell joins the NSO Pops for an evening of holiday favorites. Equally comfortable as a dancer and a singer, he's an in-demand presence on the Great White Way, with critically acclaimed performances in Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me Kate, Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Jelly's Last Jam, Sweeney Todd and, most recently, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. He's even had two cameo appearances on the hit TV show Glee, and last year released a CD of Broadway hits entitled Simply Broadway. Steven Reineke conducts the orchestra as Stokes puts his jazzy spin on all the holiday classics. Word on the street is that Jolly ol' St. Nick might even make an appearance at this show! Learn More

Under the artistic direction of Norman Scribner, the concert will be a powerful collaboration of over 250 diverse artists. With the theme of "Forward the Dream," these talented individuals will give voice to Dr. Kings legacy, emphasizing the importance of his message of non-violence, equality and justice beyond US race relations.
The 2010 Humanitarian Award will be presented to Charlayne Hunter-Gault, a distinguished journalist who has been both a soldier and beneficiary of the Civil Rights Movement.
