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

I try to attend the Choral Arts Society's Christmas concert every year. This year was especially good, I thought. Greatly enjoyed the guest mezzo and orchestra. And now I can add Russian to the list of languages I can't sing SILENT NIGHT in (but can enjoy trying to).
Live from Russia at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall under the gracious patronage of the Russian embassy, the Ural Philharmonic Orchestra and the Choral Arts Society of Washington present a holiday concert with Russian flair sure to capture the spirit of the season. Featuring a repertoire of Russian classical favorites, Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus, popular standards, audience sing-alongs and Russian folk music, attendees will celebrate the season with a Russian feast for the ears. Audience members will also learn to sing a verse of “Silent Night” in Russian.
