Tonight, December 15, 2012, The New York Pops continues its concert full of holiday cheer at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage with Pink Martini: Joy to the World. Music Director and Conductor Steven Reineke leads the orchestra in a seasonal celebration featuring guest artists Pink Martini as they perform festive favorites from their album Joy to World. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from last night's performance below!

The concert program features favorite holiday tunes like "The Little Drummer Boy," "Ocho Kandelikas," "Do You Hear What I Hear," and "We Three Kings." The performance also includes musical highlights from famed composers Maurice Ravel, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Irving Berlin.

Pink Martini is a "little orchestra" that draws inspiration from all over the world - crossing genres of classical, jazz and old- fashioned pop. Founded by pianist Thomas Lauderdale in 1994, Pink Martini features 10-12 musicians and performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia and New Zealand, South America and North America. The band has played with more than 50 orchestras around the world, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Boston Pops, the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Symphony, and the BBC Concert Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall in London. Between 1997 and 2010, Pink Martini released five albums, all of which have gone gold in France, Canada, Greece and Turkey, including Joy to the World-a festive, multi-denominational holiday album featuring songs from around the globe.

The New York Pops is the largest independent pops orchestra in the United States, and the only professional symphonic orchestra in New York City specializing in popular music. Led by Music Director Steven Reineke, the orchestra performs an annual subscription series and birthday gala at Carnegie Hall. The New York Pops also gives free concerts in New York City parks, performs interactive concerts for families, and has toured throughout the world. The New York Pops' extensive education programs allow thousands of New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds to participate in concert and music-making experiences at Carnegie Hall, public schools, community organizations, children's hospitals and senior centers throughout the five boroughs of New York City. A recipient of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, The New York Pops is a non-profit organization supported solely through the generosity of individual donations, institutional grants, corporate sponsorships and concert income.
