Broadway's N'Kenge to Join Ottawa Symphony Orchestra This Weekend
N'Kenge (Motown: The Musical, Sondheim on Sondheim) returns to Ottawa Symphony Orchestra in a brand new concert with Pops Conductor Jack Everly performing CLASSIC FM: RADIO HITS FROM THE DECADES. The Orchestra will take audiences on a musical journey through four decades of hits up and down the FM dial - from Elton John and Billy Joel to Aretha Franklin, Chicago and more at the National Arts Centre Southam Hall. N'Kenge will be joined by vocalist Ron Remke, Melissa Schott, Jim Hogan and Josh Turner.
NY Post calls N'Kenge "Electrifying" in the role of Mary Wells in Broadway's Motown: The Musical and she made her Broadway debut in Sondheim on Sondheim alongside Vanessa Williams, Barbara Cook and Norm Lewis. N'Kenge made her West End debut starring in The Genius of Ray Charles and has been hailed by Variety as "a sensational powerhouse of a singer packed in a lithe body". N'Kenge made her Carnegie Hall debut with the New York Pops Orchestra where NY Times called her "a classically trained diva that can stretch from Broadway, Pop Soul to Opera". N'Kenge has performed as a soloist with many Symphonies including Cleveland Orchestra, Baltimore Symphony, Cincinnati Symphony and Naples Philharmonic to name a few.
Ottawa Symphony Orchestra's CLASSIC FM: RADIO HITS FROM THE DECADES will perform Thursday February 26-28, 2015 at the National Arts Centre located at 53 Elgin St. Ottawa, ON K1P 5W1, Canada. For tickets, call 613-947-7000 or go online at www.ottawasymphony.com
