Pops Conductor Jack Everly is back! He returns for the first time since the pandemic with the orchestra and vocalists for some of Broadway’s best in Classic Broadway: Lerner & Loewe at the National Arts Centre.

Ending out the season as part of the NAC Orchestra’s Pops Series, audiences will get to hear some of their favourite Broadway tunes come to life. Performed with members of the NAC Orchestra and vocalists Ashley Brown, Ron Remke, Richard Todd Adams, and Ottawa’s own Ewashko Singers, you will hear a selection of uplifting classics from some of the best stage and screenwriting duos of all time. Even if the names Lerner and Loewe don’t ring a bell, their songs surely will.

Hosted by Manon St-Jules, this all-star cast will include performances from first-rate and award-winning shows like My Fair Lady, Brigadoon, Camelot, Gigi and Paint Your Wagon. It will also include the Canadian premiere of the overture to the film The Little Prince, as well as favourites including “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “Almost Like Being in Love,” and “The Night They Invented Champagne.”

The Pops Series is helping to build accessibility around orchestral music. More than just hearing your favourite and popular tunes on stage, there are ticket options available to help make seeing live music attainable for all ages. Tickets are just $29, while Under30 tickets are just $15! We always have so much fun at Pops Series events, the shows are filled with talent, full of energy, and keep you tapping your feet, clapping your hands, and maybe even singing along, from beginning to end.

Classic Broadway: Lerner & Lowe is playing two performances at the National Arts Centre on June 24 and 25. Performances start at 8 p.m., and tickets are $29 or $15 for Under30 tickets.
