Yony Award-winning stage and screen star Kelli O'Hara returns to the University of Connecticut's Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts for a virtual live performance streaming Saturday, DECEMBER 5. The evening will include a generous collection of holiday favorites as well as classics from the Great White Way and the American Songbook.
Immediately following the performance, Jorgensen's director Rodney Rock will interview Ms. O'Hara, and she will engage in a live Q&A with the audience. The concert is presented through Jorgensen Digital Stage, produced by OurConcerts.live, with support from the Jorgensen CoStars and Circle of Friends, and media sponsors CT Public, Connecticut Magazine, Radio.com and Lite 100.5 WRCH.
"I'm so grateful to have the opportunity and responsibility to perform this holiday season. It's poignant to sing about love and heartache right now. It's meaningful that we are finding new avenues to gather and honor those who aren't with us. It's beautiful to celebrate the ways each of us is doing the best we can. My relationship with these beautiful songs is always evolving, and I continue to find great joy and comfort in them. I hope they will shine a warm light on your winter as well," says Ms. O'Hara.
The program will encompass Ms. O'Hara's multi-faceted brilliance as a performing artist. She'll sing beloved musical theatre showtunes and heartwarming American standards, and sprinkle in a few seasonal holiday classics. She'll also weave in stories about the pieces she performs and talk about the people who have shaped her path as an artist and person.
