Pacific Symphony, Holiday Organ Spectacular, Todd Wilson
"I think audience members will really enjoy discovering some of the beautiful but lesser-known carols we are preparing, and also participating in the sing-alongs of many Christmas favorites such as 'Deck the Halls' and 'Silent Night,'" Smolen continues. "The sense of community and celebration should make for a really special, festive experience."
Regarded across America and around the world as one of today's finest concert organists, Wilson is the director of music and worship at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Cleveland. He also serves as house organist for the newly restored Aeolian organ at the Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens in Akron, Ohio. He has performed in major cities throughout the United States, Europe and Japan, including concerts at Symphony Hall in Birmingham, UK, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Orchestra Hall in Chicago, Severance Hall in Cleveland, Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas and Uihlein Hall in Milwaukee. His latest CDs on the JAV label feature a live recital of American music from the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., and "Live from Severence Hall," a concert of music for trumpet and organ.
Vroman garnered Theatre Critic's awards for her Broadway role as Christine Daae in Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" during a record-breaking run in San Francisco, and she also had a return engagement at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. In 2008, Vroman made her Carnegie Hall debut with the New York Pops, starred as Lili Vanessi in "Kiss Me Kate" with Glimmerglass Opera, sang the role of Birdie in "Regina" with Utah Opera, made her New Jersey Opera debut as Rosalinda in "Die Fledermaus," and premiered two Comic Operas by composers John Musto and William Bolcom with the New York Festival of Song. She is a frequent guest soloist with major theatre and opera companies as well as orchestras.
