The San Antonio Symphony’s POPS series begins with a program called Wicked Divas. The concert stars two Broadway singers (Nicole Parker and Katie Rose Clarke) who have performed in Wicked in New York City. The musical highlights include diva showstoppers from Wicked, The Wizard of Oz, My Fair Lady, Ragtime, The Phantom of the Opera and Chicago. The guest conductor will be Steven Reineke.
Nicole Parker is probably best known for playing the role of the green witch “Elphaba” in the hit Broadway production of Wicked. Also on Broadway, she was seen in Martin Short: Fame Becomes Me. This past spring, Nicole created the role of Red in The People in the Picture with Donna Murphy on Broadway. Katie Rose Clarke was most recently seen in the Broadway production of Wicked as “Glinda the Good”. She also played the role for nearly two years in the first national touring company. Clarke made her Broadway debut as Clara Johnson in the Lincon Center Theatre’s production of The Light in the Piazza under the direction of Bartlett Sher.
Maestro Reineke is the newly appointed Principal Pops Conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra at The Kennedy Center for the Arts and Music Director of The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall. In addition, he serves as Principal Pops Conductor of the Long Beach and Modesto Symphony Orchestras. As the creator of more than one hundred orchestral arrangements for the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Mr. Reineke’s work has been performed worldwide, and can be heard on numerous Cincinnati Pops Orchestra recordings on the Telarc label.
