It was announced today that Idina will be replacing fellow Broadway legend Patti LuPone as the guest vocalist for the National Symphony Orchestra Pops season opening weekend October 28-30 at Washington, DC’s Kennedy Center.
Hot on the heels of her sold-out performance with the NSO at Wolf Trap in July, Tony winner Idina Menzel (Wicked) opens the NSO Pops season with Principal Pops Conductor Marvin Hamlisch in a diverse program of classic pop, musical theater favorites (including hits from Wicked and Rent) and her own original stories and songs. A powerhouse of talent, the Glee favorite constantly amazes audiences with her compelling, humorous, and emotional performances.
In a statement Idina said, “I am delighted to return to the National Symphony Orchestra so quickly, and especially to open the NSO’s Pops Season with Marvin Hamlisch. We all worked together for the first time just a few days ago at Wolf Trap, and we had a terrific time. I can’t wait to be with Marvin and the NSO again!”
Tickets go on sale to the public August 11th and are $20 – $85 and can be purchased (at that time) on the Kennedy Center’s website.
