NY Pops music director and conductor Steven Reineke leads the 8 PM concert at Carnegie Hall that showcases Schwartz's prolific career from stage and screen, including "Magic To Do" from Pippin, "Colors of the Wind" from "Pocahontas," "The Spark of Creation" from Children of Eden, as well as songs from Wicked, including "The Wizard and I" and "For Good."
Murney (The Wild Party, Falling) and Tony Award nominee Thompson (Nice Work If You Can Get It) are both veterans of Wicked, having played Elphaba and Glinda, respectively. Jordan is a Tony Award nominee for Newsies and Lewis received his first Tony nomination for The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess last season.
The evening also includes Judith Clurman's Essential Voices USA, who are premiering "Testimony," a new work by Schwartz that is inspired by the words of the "It Gets Better Project."
