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

Norman Scribner, conductor
Members of the Washington Symphonic Brass - Phil Snedecor, Artistic Director
180 voices throughout the Concert Hall create The Original Surround Sound.
Choral Arts opens its 45th Anniversary season with this innovative and unique concert. Under the baton of Artistic Director Norman Scribner, the full 180-member chorus will be positioned in up to eight locations throughout the Concert Hall, literally encircling the audience with sound. Hear the 400-year progression of this classic art form from the 16th to 20th centuries, including Frank Martin’s powerful Mass for Double Choir.
Members of the Washington Symphonic Brass join with Choral Arts for this exciting performance, playing with the chours and between choral pieces. The presence of the brass will be so strong that Maestro Scribner described the experience as two concerts for the price of one!
