An Evening Like No Other

  • September 23, 2017 at 5:00 pm

Join us for a benefit in support of student scholarships at George Mason University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts and the Great Performances at Mason season at the Center for the Arts. The evening begins by showcasing the remarkable talents of Mason students amid an array of spectacular food and beverages, and culminates in the Concert Hall when Tony Award winner and Broadway star Kelli O’Hara takes the stage to perform a radiant concert of Broadway favorites, pop classics, and great American standards. In addition, a talented student vocal ensemble from George Mason University’s School of Music will join O’Hara on stage for a number or two. O’Hara has unequivocally established herself as one of the great leading ladies, starring in The King and I, The Light in the Piazza, South Pacific, and The Pajama Game. Don’t miss this dynamic entertainer with “angelic vocals”

(The Daily Free Press) serenade you with melodies from your favorite Broadway musicals.
