In what has become an annual tradition, The Camp Broadway Ensemble has been invited to perform on the world-famous stage of Carnegie Hall as part of The New York Pops Birthday Gala on May 1, 2023. This year marks their 40th Birthday Gala and will pay tribute to and feature the music of Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning icon Barry Manilow!
Performing under the baton of The New York Pops Music Director, Steven Reineke, young performers from across the country will make their Carnegie Hall debut at the culmination of a 3 days of rehearsals, including master classes in vocal performance, dancing, and acting, all under the direction of Camp Broadway’s creative team of Broadway industry professionals.
Among the Broadway and recording industry stars performing are Erick Bergen, Betty Buckley, Charo, Deborah Cox, and Max von Essen, as well as feature appearances by cast members from the off-Broadway cast of Manilow’s musical, Harmony, including Sean Bell, Danny Kroenfeld, Zal Owen, Eric Peters, Blake Roman, and Steven Kelsey. More stars will be announced at a later date.
My daughter recently performed for the 5th time at Carnegie Hall with Camp Broadway and the NY Pops. Such an amazing experience for our performers! The weekend is jam-packed with training, workshops, rehearsal, and fun! And the NY Pops Spring Gala is a wonderful evening of spectacular Broadway performances and, of course, the Camp Broadway Kids! Too bad my daughter will be too old next year!!
My son David has performed in two extraordinary events with Camp Broadway – Rocktopia on Broadway and NY Pops 35th Birthday Gala at Carnegie Hall. He says both experiences were the best experiences he has ever had in his entire life! The staff and all the attendees were fantastic and the entire process from beginning to end was incredible. He can’t wait until the next one! Thank you to everyone involved with Camp Broadway for giving kids these opportunities!!!
My daughter had an amazing weekend with the NY Pops Gala. Camp Broadway staff were professional and she learned a lot. She hopes to attend a summer camp next!
