NEMPAC is partnering once again with the Mayor’s Office of Special Events this summer season to bring this exciting music program to Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park and it is FREE to the community. The series is being generously supported by many exceptional sponsors. Audiences can look forward to an appealing array of music genres and NEMPAC Faculty, Artistic Directors, and Friends Thursday nights at 7:00 p.m.
The concert series kicks off July 9th with “Songs in the Key of Broadway: A musical timeline of 42nd Street”. It will take the audience from the earliest moments of musical theatre to the blockbuster productions of today. From Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Rodgers & Hammerstein to Sondheim, Lloyd Webber, and Schwartz, it is a celebration of comedy and love with some of America’s most beloved tunes. Performers include NEMPAC favorites Lindsay Conrad and Christian Schwebler, and welcoming Reagle Music Theatre star, Lori L’Italien.
