Presented by Manhattan Concert Productions, which staged a starry concert production of Ragtime at Avery Fisher Hall last winter, the 8 PM evening promises performances by Jackson (The Performers, Finian's Rainbow, Xanadu), Boykin (Porgy and Bess, Show Boat) and Carmello (Scandalous, Parade).
The New York City Chamber Orchestra will offer overtures from the musical theatre canon, with Jackson, Boykin and Carmello delivering solos from Broadway; attendees can also expect to enjoy choral work from the Manhattan Chorale.
Manhattan Concert Productions will return to Avery Fisher Hall in February 2014 with a concert staging of Maury Yeston's Tony Award-winning musical Titanic.
Manhattan Concert Productions is an educational performance company dedicated to excellence in music making, hospitality and travel details. Its focus is placed on the selection and preparation of visiting musicians, guest conductors, professional bands and orchestras, and soloists.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
