On December 21st at 3 pm the Westchester Philharmonic and Broadways brightest stars will light up the Concert Hall at the Purchase Performing Arts Center with its annual Winter Pops! The Phil’s newly appointed Principal Conductor Ted Sperling will lead a program titled Anywhere I Wander: The Frank Loesser Songbook, starring two time Tony-winner Christine Ebersole (Grey Gardens, 42nd Street), Drama Desk winner Santino Fontana, (Cinderella, Billy Elliott, and the recent Oscar-winning hit Frozen) and Laura Osnes (Bonnie & Clyde, Cinderella).
One of the most versatile of musical theater composers, Frank Loesser wrote works that are among the most creative and enduring achievements of Broadway including Guys & Dolls, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Where’s Charley?, and The Most Happy Fella. Even before he wrote his first show he was known to America for the song hits of his Hollywood career, including the Oscar-winning “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” In all, he wrote lyrics for more than 60 songs and films.
About a similar program directed by Ted Sperling and presented by the New York Philharmonic, Playbill commented: “Put together with the taste, intelligence, and scholarship that we’ve come to expect from musical director Ted Sperling, whose expert conducting of this marvelous orchestra was only one of many highlights, the evening glowed from start to finish.”
Audiences can keep the holiday fun going at our popular Pops After-Party! Mingle with the stars while enjoying scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and a wine tasting with Aries Wines & Spirits. Early reservations are a must! Only $22 with a Pops ticket purchase.
