Kristin Chenoweth with the Louisville Orchestra
Valentine’s Weekend Performance with the Louisville Orchestra Saturday, February 13
The Louisville Orchestra is pleased to announce that Kristin Chenoweth, star of film, Broadway and television, will perform from her Coming Home tour, at the Kentucky Center on Saturday, February 13 at 8PM. which features hits from Wicked, Glee and a program of Broadway and Pop standards with the orchestra.
Single tickets start at $35.
Highlights of the Coming Home concert with the Louisville Orchestra include powerful new renditions of “Popular” and “For Good,” both of which Chenoweth introduced in her starring role in the Broadway smash Wicked. She also brings fresh energy and emotion to such venerable standards as Lerner and Loewe’s “I Could Have Danced All Night,” Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg’s “Over the Rainbow,” Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein’s “All the Things You Are,” and the more recent show tunes “Bring Him Home,” from Les Misérables; and “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,” from Phantom of the Opera.
“I can’t just sing a song for no reason, so I only choose songs that mean something to me,” Chenoweth states. “For example, I chose ‘My Coloring Book’ because when I was in college, my voice teacher didn’t think I understood the song, and told me to pull it out one day when I did. So I’m singing it all these years later, and she was there to witness it. I also like to reintroduce songs that people may not be familiar with, like Stephen Foster’s ‘Hard Times,’ which is from 1853 but sounds like it could have been written today. And I love to do songs that people wouldn’t expect from me, like ‘Enough Is Enough’.”
