On November 19, 2010 at 8:00 PM in Carnegie Hall, Music Director and conductor Steven Reineke led The New York Pops in a concert of Stephen Sondheim's greatest songs and soliloquies, in commemoration of the composer's 80th birthday. Broadway favorites Kate Baldwin, Aaron Lazar, Christiane Noll and Alexander Gemignani joined the orchestra - and Essential Voices USA - in this vibrant tribute to one of musical theatre's greatest icons.

Described by The New York Times as "the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in the American musical theatre," Sondheim is celebrated for his incomparable achievements as a composer and lyricist for the stage. His works have garnered more than sixty individual and collaborative Tony Awards, and among a host of other accolades, Stephen Sondheim has been awarded The Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Kennedy Center Honors, a National Medal of Arts, and the Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre. This concert program will feature selections from his musical hits Company, A Little Night Music, Into The Woods, Sweeney Todd, and Sunday in the Park with George, among others.
