Peter Nero performed a memorable “Rhapsody in Blue” at the POPS’ first-ever performance in 1979, kicking off the POPS’ storied 42-year history with one of America’s greatest songwriters and composers, George Gershwin.
Guest conductor Byron Stripling presents the best work of this incandescent talent with this program, featuring “Rhapsody in Blue,” music from Porgy and Bess, An American in Paris, and more! The program features some of the hottest stars of new Broadway, POPS favorites Nikki Renée Daniels, unforgettable Disney princess, Allison Blackwell—fresh from her July 3rd triumph, and Ryan Silverman, last seen with the POPS in Abell’s Bernstein retrospective. Piano virtuoso Charlie Albright will perform “Rhapsody in Blue” with his dynamic, exciting style.
