Carnegie Hall Presents

Jessica Vosk

My Golden Age
Monday, November 8, 2021 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Jessica Vosk by Matthew Murphy
Hear one of Broadway’s biggest voices soar up to the Balcony of Carnegie Hall. Jessica Vosk makes her Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage headlining debut in My Golden Age, her homage to the likes of Barbra Streisand, Judy Garland, Bette Midler, Linda Ronstadt, and other legendary voices. Along with special guests Kristin Chenoweth and Pentatonix’s Scott Hoying, Vosk also pays tribute to composers Stephen Sondheim, Stephen Schwartz, and Leonard Cohen—artists whom she credits with writing musical scores “like maps for my life.” With Zac Posen lending his talents as the evening’s creative consultant and a special appearance by New York City Ballet principal dancer Sara Mearns, My Golden Age is sure to mark a new era of memorable Broadway vocalists at the Hall.

Jessica Vosk is absolutely honored and pinching herself to be making her Carnegie Hall solo debut this season, and to be a part of welcoming everyone back to live music again in New York City. Vosk is best known for her star-turn as Elphaba in the musical Wicked. She first took Elphaba on tour and then joined Wicked for the show’s 15th anniversary on Broadway, playing the green witch for a total of two years.

Before the infamous shutdown, Vosk starred as the Narrator in the 50th anniversary of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Lincoln Center. She created the role of Aunt Val in the world premiere of the new musical Becoming Nancy, directed and choreographed by Jerry Mitchell. Vosk became the first singer to star onstage with the New York City Ballet in the company’s tribute to Jerome Robbins titled Something to Dance About, directed by Warren Carlyle.

Vosk’s Broadway credits include recreating the role of Fruma Sarah in the revival of Fiddler on the Roof, Finding Neverland, and The Bridges of Madison County. She starred as Anita in the San Francisco Symphony’s Grammy-nominated production of West Side Story and filmed a special performance with Michael Tilson Thomas for PBS’s Leonard Bernstein Centennial Celebration at Tanglewood as part of the Great Performances series.

Vosk independently produced two albums in the past three years, which both debuted on the Billboard and iTunes charts. Wild and Free and A Very Coco Christmas are both available to stream on all platforms.

Next year, you can find Vosk overseas, making her London concert debut at Cadogan Hall, then traveling to Ireland for a concert at the National Opera House.

Truth be told, Vosk’s path to Carnegie Hall came by way of originally starting a career in finance before taking a leap to try and make her way to the Broadway stage. Her one-of-a-kind story has been covered by ABC’s 20/20, among others. Jessica would like to thank her family for helping her to pursue her dreams, no matter how large or daunting they may have seemed. Follow along on all socials: @jessicavosk.
