The Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra (GNSO) will present “Broadway in Your Backyard” on Saturday, July 27, at 4 p.m. at Aquinas Hall on the Mount Saint Mary College campus in Newburgh.

The program will feature four soloists who have appeared on Broadway singing the works of Gilbert & Sullivan, George Gershwin, Rodgers & Hammerstein and Andrew Lloyd Webber, to name but a few.

“Fun is the watchword for this performance,” said Russell Ger, music director of the GNSO. “The show encompasses the entire history of Broadway, from a Viennese operetta in 1874 to modern classics like 'Rent.'

"Audience and musicians alike will enjoy hearing how the style evolves over the decades from the classically derived Gilbert & Sullivan, to the inescapable influence of jazz starting in the 1920s with Gershwin, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter, through the rock & roll of the 70s with Lloyd Webber, ABBA and Larson," Ger added. "Our team of soloists is phenomenal: Alexa Green, Susan O’Dea, Adam Rennie and Andrew Hubacher. This should be one of the crowning highlights of the summer.”

Completing his third year of GNSO leadership, Ger has led the orchestra to new attendance records since its season-opening concert in October and second annual Holiday Concert in December.

This will be the eighth concert of the year, including six subscription performances. .

Again, “Broadway in Your Backyard” will be presented Saturday, July 27 at 4:00 p.m. at Mount Saint Mary College's Aquinas Hall. Tickets – Balcony $50, Reserved $40, Open $35, Senior Citizen $25 – can be purchased online or at the door. Call 845/913-7157 or visit www.newburghsymphony.org. Students are admitted free to Open seating.

The Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra is one of the leading cultural institutions of the Hudson River Valley. It was founded in 1995 by Dr. Woomyung Choe and its first president, George Handler, who was followed as president after 10 years by the late Fred McCurdy. In addition to its regular concerts, the Orchestra performs special engagements, such as the Moxart concert this year in March and another performance at Boscobel on July 7.
