Happening in December: New Year’s Eve with Renée Fleming

When: Monday, December 31 at 7:30 pm

Internationally renowned soprano Renée Fleming has received numerous honors: including the National Medal of Arts, four Grammy Awards, and a Tony nomination. She’s sung to audiences in Buckingham Palace, at the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, and at the Super Bowl—not to mention various locations across the globe. This New Year’s Eve, she’ll sing to you.

On December 31, Fleming shares the spotlight with the New York Philharmonic, under the direction of newly instated Music Director Jaap van Zweden. The concert promises sizzling Broadway hits and film score classics, beguiling Viennese waltzes, and dazzling operatic fireworks.
