James Monroe Iglehart, Megan Hilty, Matt Doyle, and Ali Ewoldt are among the Broadway actors who will be part of The New York Pops’ 35th season at Carnegie Hall, which launches October 27 with a celebration of founder Skitch Henderson.

The evenings will be led by music director and conductor Steven Reineke.

“It is an absolute pleasure and a great honor to announce the lineup we’ve put together for our spectacular 35th season at Carnegie Hall!” said Reineke in a statement. “As always, the 78 incredible musicians of the orchestra will be joined onstage by some of the most talented and creative singers in the industry. It’s hard to pick one concert that I’m most excited about—this season promises to be one of our best yet. From a celebration of Skitch’s centennial and the orchestra’s legacy to a concert of my favorite film scores, not to mention the incomparably talented stars joining the orchestra, I can guarantee that everyone is going to have a good time!”
