On December 16 and 17, The New York Pops, led by music director Steven Reineke, present evenings full of holiday cheer at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage entitled Make the Season Bright.
The orchestra is joined by sisters and Tony nominees Liz Callaway and Ann Hampton Callaway, brothers Anthony and Will Nunziata, and Judith Clurman’s Essential Voices USA. Show time for both evenings is 8 PM.
“Our December concerts really are my favorite holiday tradition, and I believe that they’re a cherished holiday tradition for the 5,000 New Yorkers who attend each winter!,” said Reineke in a previous statement. “For years, I’ve been dreaming of getting my good friends the Callaway sisters and the Nunziata twins on stage with The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall. It’s really going to be a fun family affair, and the chemistry among these performers will be absolutely electric. I want it to feel like everyone in the hall is sitting around the fireplace, sipping hot chocolate, and singing our favorite songs. That’s what a New York Pops holiday concert should really be like —coming home to your family!”
