Michael Cavanaugh Channels Elton John with NSO Pops

Screen Shot 2013-10-25 at 3.51.30 PM.pngA few years ago Michael Cavanaugh, star of the Billy Joel-focused Broadway musical Movin’ Out, performed a Joel-inspired concert with his rock band and the National Symphony Orchestra Pops. Two years ago, the man Billboard magazine has annointed as “the new voice of the American rock and roll songbook” joined the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra SuperPops to play a concert inspired by that other famous rock piano man, the gay great Elton John. And if that’s good enough for Baltimore, the NSO must have reasoned…And so now in D.C., we have a program led by gay principal pops conductor Steven Reineke of The Songs of Elton John, featuring tunes including “Rocket Man,” “Candle in the Wind,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and many more.

 

Friday, Oct. 25, and Saturday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. Kennedy Center Concert Hall. Tickets are $20 to $85. Call 202-467-4600 or visit kennedy-center.org
