Genre is not a word that seems to be in Renee Fleming's vocabulary, just as her vocal ability does not confine her to a certain arena. The four time Grammy award winner graced the Broadway stage last season as Nettie in Rodgers and Hammerstein's CAROUSEL, opposite Jessie Mueller and Josh Henry. Not only that, but the renowned soprano also nabbed a Tony nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for said role. It is only right that Decca Classics just released Ms. Fleming's latest album full of musical theater classics, aptly titled BROADWAY.

At what concert can you hear music from both Young the Giant and Olivia Newton-John?  The LM/DC Tour featuring former "Glee" stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss. Michele and Criss kicked off the second leg of their tour this week. This weekend they play both the Durham Performing Arts Center and Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte. A youthful energy erupted when Michele and Criss took the stage at DPAC Friday night. They opened the show with "Broadway Baby," followed by two more Broadway popular showtune duets, "Suddenly, Seymour" and "Falling Slowly." Michele opened her solo set with "Cannonball" and "Battlefield" two songs from her first album "Louder." She continued singing fan favorites from "Glee" and paid homage to Lady Gaga and Pink, but it was "Don't Rain on My Parade," a song most recognizably sung by Barbra Streisand, that brought the audience to a standing ovation.
