Community Sing: The People Sing with the Broadway All-Star Voices

Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College
Imagine you’re on a lit-up Broadway stage—now get ready to sing with a chorus of real Broadway all-stars! Mandy Gonzalez, Rachel Potter, Caesar Samayoa, and many more join Leslie Stifelman, musical director and conductor of Chicago: The Musical, and host Thomas Cabaniss in guiding the audience through the show-stopping, electrifying numbers of your most beloved Broadway musicals including Hair, West Side Story, Rent, and Les Misérables.

Leslie Stifelman is the music director and conductor for Chicago: The Musical, the longest running American musical in Broadway history. A distinguished performer and entertainment executive, Stifelman’s projects have been awarded the highest arts and media honors including the Peabody and Grammy awards. For the past three years, she has been the music supervisor for Carnegie Hall’s large-scale choir projects, collaborating with conductors Marin Alsop and David Robertson, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and 600 New York City high school students.

Thomas Cabaniss lives in New York City and composes music for opera, theater, dance, film, and concerts. He worked with choreographer Hilary Easton to create a series of dance-theater pieces, and his music for theater has appeared in shows on and off Broadway. He has written an opera based on E. T. A. Hoffmann’s The Sandman, and he scored an Oscar-winning short film, The Lunch Date. His choral works include Behold the Star, available on New World Records and published by Boosey & Hawkes. He is a faculty member of The Juilliard School.
