NHSO Shines the Spotlight on Broadway

New Haven, CT, September 15, 2008: The New Haven Symphony Orchestra Pops and Associate Conductor Gerald Steichen bring New York City to New Haven as they present a spectacular evening of Broadway’s most popular music in Best of Broadway, Friday, September 26, 7:30pm at the Shubert Theater and Sunday, September 28 3pm, at Shelton Intermediate School. The NHSO Pops will shine the spotlight on award-winning musicals such as The Music Man, Guys & Dolls, Fiddler on the Roof, Carousel, Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera and more. Best of Broadway features two of Broadway’s rising stars, Sarah Uriarte Berry, and Kyle Pfortmiller.

Sarah Uriarte Berry was most recently seen on Broadway as Franca in The Light in the Piazza, for which she received Drama Desk and Outer Critics nominations. Other Broadway credits include: Nicola in Taboo, Belle in Beauty and the Beast and Eponine in Les Misérables. Ms. Berry has performed with the Colorado Symphony and the Pacific Symphony and will sing at Carnegie Hall with the Baltimore Symphony and the New York Pops this fall.

Kyle Pformiller has employed his unique talent in opera, operetta and musical theatre from the contemporary to the classic. He made his European debut with the De Nederlandse Opera as Silvio in I pagliacci in 2006 to critical acclaim. Mr. Pfortmiller was recently seen as Count Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) with Michigan Opera Theatre, Maximilian (Candide) with New York City Opera, and as Thomas Jefferson (1776) and Cinderella’s Prince/The Wolf (Into the Woods) with Utah Festival Opera.
