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

This was a wonderful concert. The program was modern and included familiar and unfamiliar pieces. The orchestra, chorus and soloists including the young male treble from the Cathedral Boys' choir were all superb. And it is always a treat at see Norman Scribner conduct and especially since he will retire after this season.
In the season opener of his final season, retiring founder and artistic director Norman Scribner will conduct some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th Century that hold special meaning for Choral Arts.
