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 is a marvelous eclectic program that was enthusiastically received by the audience on Thursday night regardless of what the Post's snooty reviewer had to say. Ingrid Filter is a fiery, bravisimo player whose Schumann was electrifying. The NSO's rendition of Mozart's Jupiter Symphony--perhaps his greatest--was sublime. I also enjoyed the NSO-commissioned work, "Shoreless River." I am not necessarily a fan of modern orchestral music, but this piece was accessible and emotionally satisfying. Thank you Goldstar for making the NSO--one of Washington's true treasures--affordable.
