Bravo Broadway!

Bravo Broadway! is an exciting and wildly popular evening of Broadway favorites performed by three stars from the Broadway stage.  Bravo Broadway! has been performed with orchestras all over the world to great acclaim. Bravo Broadway! is a unique evening of familiar Broadway songs performed with your symphony orchestra. 

 

 The stylistic contrasts were striking between the first and second acts of the Kansas City Symphony's "Bravo Broadway!" Pops Concert at the Music Hall Friday night.  With a trio of talented Broadway veterans sharing the spotlight, the evening's first half was devoted to the music and words of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, the 20th century's seminal forces in the world of musical theater.  The evening's second half inhabited much darker emotional territory, with the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber taking center stage.  Selections from Lloyd Webber's "Phantom of the Opera," the Music Hall's most recent tenant, brought down the curtain on a satisfying evening with Maguire and Horvath's romantic "All I Ask of You" and LaBrecque's hypnotic "Music of the Night," which brought the crowd to its feet for a sustained and deserved standing ovation.

“Leave it to the Peoria Symphony Orchestra and a trio of guest singers to put the "pop" back into a pops concert.  Saturday night's "Bravo Broadway" concert at the Civic Center Theater was anything but the old war horses taken out again for yet another trot. Let's hope the symphony brings back "Bravo Broadway" for another year.”
          - Gary A. Panetta – Journal Star (Peoria, IL)

 

"Bravo Broadway," this season's final subscription concert of the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony Orchestra, was a great occasion for Broadway and metro concertgoers.  The encore from "Hair" turned into a sing-along before everyone reluctantly left the hall, humming or whistling show tunes.  It was a great way to close a season."
