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
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

An athletic director in Kristjan Jarvi, a dynamic soloist in Jennifer Koh, a wonderful program of Enescu, Barber, and Rachmaninoff.....What's not to love. Oh and I forgot a great orchestra performing at the top of its game,
And thanks to Goldstar for providing best seats in the house.
Parts One and Two of the program each run 36 minutes, separated by a 15-minute intermission.
AfterWords: The Thursday Oct. 31 performance is followed by a free discussion with the artists and NSO Director of Artistic Planning Nigel Boon.
