Tony- and Grammy Award-nominated songwriter Sara Bareilles and Fred Ebb Award-winning composer-lyricist Shaina Taub will make special appearances with the New York Pops orchestra at its November 17 concert, Women of Notes, celebrating female songwriters, at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
As previously announced, Betsy Wolfe, who is currently starring on Broadway in Bareilles’ musical Waitress, will take time off to take perform in this concert, which will be conducted by NY Pops Music Director Steven Reineke. Wolfe will reunite with her Last Five Years co-star Adam Kantor, who is also appearing on Broadway this fall, in the cast of the new musical The Band’s Visit.
Kantor played the role of Motel Kamzoil in the recent Broadway revival of Fiddler on the Roof. He made his Broadway debut playing Mark in the final cast of Rent, which was preserved on DVD by Sony Pictures’ Rent, Filmed Live on Broadway.
Tickets for the Women of Notes, priced at $21–$140, can be ordered online at Carnegiehall.org, by phone at (212) 247-7800, or in person at the Carnegie Hall box office, at 57th Street and Seventh Avenue in Manhattan.
