Ashley Brown Set to Play With the BSO, 2/21-24

Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly leads vocalist Ashley Brown in a performance of beloved Broadway hits on Thursday, February 21 at 8 p.m. at the Music Center at Strathmore and Friday, February 22 at 8 p.m., Saturday, February 23 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, February 24 at 3 p.m. at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Ms. Brown, known as Broadway's original Mary Poppins, will perform popular Broadway selections including "Make Someone Happy," "A Spoon Full of Sugar," "Le Jazz Hot," "Defying Gravity" from Wicked and more. Also on the program is a medley of popular Disney tunes, including "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" from Cinderella, "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, "Someday My Prince Will Come" from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and "Once Upon a Dream" from Sleeping Beauty. Please see below for complete program details.

Broadway, or "The Great White Way," is famous for bringing the best of the best to the stage. Its renowned shows feature some of the most talented singers and actors of the day including the "golden throated" Ashley Brown. Ms. Brown's career flourished on the Broadway stage where she starred as Belle in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" and then as everyone's favorite nanny in "Mary Poppins." Showbiz Chicago calls Ms. Brown "the most versatile and noteworthy young talent on the Broadway stages," making her the perfect voice for this all-Broadway performance.

The program will feature Broadway classics including "Make Someone Happy," "A Spoon Full of Sugar," "Le Jazz Hot" and more. The Broadway classic "Make Someone Happy" originated from the 1960 musical "Do Re Mi" but went on to become more popular than the show itself. The song has been immortalized in the recordings of Judy Garland, Doris Day, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin and many other artists.

"A Spoon Full of Sugar" is originally from Disney's 1964 hit musical film Mary Poppins. The piece is a musical delight that will shine when performed by Broadway's original Mary Poppins, Ashley Brown.

The program also includes "Le Jazz Hot," a song originally from the 1982 musical film Victor Victoria which debuted on Broadway in 1995. While both Mary Poppins and Victor Victoria starred the brilliant Julie Andrews, "Le Jazz Hot" leaves behind all notions of childhood as it submerges itself into the darkness of 1930s Paris.

This performance will highlight many more of these Broadway classics from this one amazing stage.
