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 was at this concert Saturday night because I had already heard it Thursday night. I'm sorry that I missed it on Friday afternoon. Dharma at Big Sur is a triumph. I have had the recording for several months but nothing beats hearing it live. Those of you who missed it should watch for other opportunities to hear it. I feel so blessed to be alive while John Adams is composing.
John Adams returns for a program that includes two of his works, The Dharma at Big Sur, featuring violinist Leila Josefowicz, and his Doctor Atomic Symphony. Also on the program are works by Britten and Stravinsky.
Britten: Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Op. 33a
Adams: The Dharma at Big Sur
Stravinsky: Feu d'Artifice
Adams: Dr. Atomic Symphony
