Beloved show tunes, grand movie scores, and R&B classics are but a few of the pops favorites you’ll hear at Carnegie Hall. This fun, easy-to-love music is a favorite of longtime visitors as well, as an ideal way to experience Carnegie Hall for the first time.
The spectacular career of Liza Minnelli—a record holder for an unprecedented 17 consecutive sold-out performances at Carnegie Hall—is celebrated by Michael Feinstein and stellar guests. Feinstein’s silky vocals, a lively piano trio, Tony Award–nominated singer-dancer Tony Yazbeck (On the Town), and others honor the legendary star with the songs that make us love her.

In honor of the musical monarch’s centennial, The New York Pops performs all the songs that made us fall in L-O-V-E with Nat King Cole—including such favorites as "Unforgettable," "Embraceable You," and "When I Fall in Love"—plus special selections by the fellow legends he inspired.
Please note that Billy Porter has withdrawn from this performance due to a scheduling conflict. Nikki Renée Daniels and Ryan Shaw take his place as guest artists on this program.
