The New York Pops Opening Night for their 32nd Season

Last friday was The New York Pops Opening Night for their 32nd Season at Carnegie Hall. I was thrilled to be there to photograph the concert that was conducted by the handsome and charming and very talented Steven Reineke and included the amazing Finnish cappella ensemble Rajaton. The group of six bought to life the words of the Beatles songs and together with the orchestra they created an uplifting and exciting evening of music and voices.
The first half was devoted to the songs of Abby Road and I loved hearing their interpretation of many of my favorite songs while the second half focussed on the Beatles top hits. It was hard to sit still and I found my feet tapping along with all the familiar tunes.
After the concert was over the audience was invited to join the cast across the street for cocktails and appetizers. For the small fee of $125 happy guests got to mingle with the performers and enjoyed meeting new people while a portion of the ticket price was donated to the Pops Educational program.
