Pop Over To Forest Hills Stadium On July 7th
We have been announcing add-ons to the summer schedule of live entertainment at the Forest Hills Stadium as soon as that information is made available to us. Tickets for concerts held here sell out almost immediately and we don’t want you to miss out. Today we received word that The New York Pops, the iconic and influential organization that embodies the spirit of New York, is returning with a performance starring Tony and Emmy nominee Matthew Morrison.
Last summer The New York Pops played to a sold-out audience at this open-air venue, and the rumor around town is that this year’s concert will be no different. The New York Pop’s educational effort, Kids in the Balcony program, allowing for free admission for 1,000 children to have an opportunity to attend and learn about live music, also returns. If you were fortunate to have been in the audience at the 2015 concert you will certainly remember the positive energy from those well-behaved youngsters in attendance.
Music Director Steven Reineke is as excited to be in Forest Hills, as Rego Park and Forest Hills residents are to have The New York Pops in their back yard “I am beyond thrilled to return to the stadium – we had such a blast last summer, and I know that the orchestra and Matthew are going to knock it out of the park in July! Matthew’s performances with us in December 2014 were absolutely electric. We played two sold-out nights at Carnegie Hall. I am glad he will bring his larger-than-life talent to join our full orchestra in this incredible venue. And in case you’re not excited enough, keep your eyes peeled for the announcement of our other special guest!”
A mystery guest, hmm. Anyone care to venture a guess? Our hope would be Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa in Disney’s Frozen or Linda Eder of Jekyll & Hyde fame. Either would be a fabulous pairing with Broadway’s Matthew Morrison, although we’re certain whoever the guest is won’t disappoint.
Forest Hills Stadium events have been made possible through a partnership with the local community, with an emphasis on making concerts a rewarding experience for all. As members of this community, residents of the luxury rental building, The Alexander at Rego Center agree these live, top-performer concerts are representative of an unmatched neighborhood quality.
The latest rumor is Van Morrison will be performing sometime in October, and we’ll keep you posted on that.
Tickets are on sale at www.foresthillsstadium.com; prices range from $15.00 to $95.00. Remember, children are admitted free.
Another reminder, The New York Pops annual subscription series at Carnegie Hall opens October 14, 2016 with “The Musical World of Lerner and Loewe.”
