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

The NSO gave Matthew Halls all he wanted in a terrific, diverse set of suites. The opening suite gave me the visual of walking through a peaceful meadow, slowly gazing at a meandering creek. Accomplished guest cellist David Hardy joined the fold for an amazing solo during the second piece, travelling all the way down the A string to play a lilting, violin pitched note for a good 5 minutes. Sealing the 5 star review was the after show talk by Matthew Halls and David Hardy, as well my gf's enjoyment of the show.
