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

A co-commission with the University of California Washington Center, Mount Vernon, and the NSO, the multimedia work george WASHINGTON features actors portraying the nation's first President as a youth, in middle age, and in his mid-60s -- using words known to have been written or spoken by Washington. Sound and video artists worked with composer Roger Reynolds, and ambient and specific sounds and images have been recorded at Mount Vernon. There will be projections on screens around the stage walls of the Concert Hall, and surround-sound speakers will be placed around the hall. The premiere coincides with an important milestone for Mount Vernon: the September 27 opening of The Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington. In addition to safeguarding original Washington volumes, the Library will serve as a center for research, educator programs, and leadership training.
