17 Jul 2014
Additional programs have been added to the New York Philharmonic's 2014–15 season, including two evenings with Broadway favorites.
New Year’s Eve: A Gershwin Celebration, conducted by Bramwell Tovey, will be presented Dec. 31. The evening will feature Tony nominee and current The Phantom of the Opera star Norm Lewis and vocalist Dianne Reeves. The concert will include Gershwin’s Cuban Overture and Catfish Row: Suite from Porgy and Bess, and Reeves will sing jazz-inspired selections from the Gershwin songbook, joined by pianist Peter Martin, bass player Reuben Rogers and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington.
On Feb. 14, 2015, audiences will be treated to A Broadway Romance, conducted by Tony winner Ted Sperling and featuring vocalists Laura Osnes and Santino Fontana. The Valentine’s Day concert, according to press notes, "paints a portrait of the vicissitudes of romance told through Broadway songs and duets culled from Bernstein’s West Side Story, Bock’s She Loves Me, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, Stephen Sondheim’s Follies, and more."
