Photo Coverage: 'Hallelujah Broadway' Concert

Hallelujah Broadway, the musical extravaganza from Bill Hughes, the producer of The Irish Tenors, is based on the simple premise that powerful songs can bring an audience to their feet, gladden their hearts and give them something to really feel good about. How often have people come out of a Broadway Musical and felt they had just had a religious experience?  On Monday, October 4, the concert was seen only on WLIW21 here in the New York metropolitan-area in an intimate concert at City Winery, exclusive to WLIW21 donors and industry insiders. BroadwayWorld was on hand and brings you photo coverage below.

In Hallelujah Broadway, the producers harnessed the emotional power of the songs that have so inspired millions of theatre goers and gathered them all together in one feast of entertainment. The producers selected the most uplifting and powerful songs from the great Broadway musicals for the performance, which were recorded in Prague at the Church of St. Simon & St. Judah, accompanied by the Prague Filmharmonic Orchestra and Choir.

Hallelujah Broadway is part of of a PBS Special series that showcases inspired vocal performances. Crucially, Hallelujah Broadway features star central performances from three featured soloists - the amazing tenor Rodrick Dixon, the powerful soprano from the Chicago Symphony Alfreda Burke, and the world renowned Tenor Anthony Kearns
