The New York Pops Play Carnegie Hall, 11/9
On November 9, 2012, The New York Pops orchestra will be the star of the performance at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke – described by The New York Times as a "polished, welcoming host" who is "young and vigorous, with a playful attitude" – will lead the orchestra in a highly-anticipated performance featuring a program of popular and familiar classical repertoire.
The concert program features music from some of the world's most beloved composers, including Respighi's "The Pines of the Appian Way" from The Pines of Rome, Maurice Ravel's "Bolero", Claude Debussy's "Claire de Lune", and Tchaikovsky's "Festival Overture in E-flat major, Op. 49" from The Year 1812. The concert will feature soloists from the orchestra, including concertmaster Cenovia Cummins and principal cellist David Heiss.
The New York Pops will give its Facebook fans the chance to vote for one of the pieces to be performed that evening, in a rare concert crowdsourcing opportunity. For more information on voting on concert repertoire, visit www.facebook.com/newyorkpops between October 25 and November 8.
