Broadway darling Karen Mason and conductor Michael Berkowitz join the Princeton Symphony Orchestra for a musical homage to Judy Garland’s life and career in “Broadway POPS!: The Garland Magic.” Having recently wowed audience ears as the Queen of Hearts in Wonderland on Broadway, Mason spends the evening interpreting Garland’s Carnegie Hall concert, bringing classics such as “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “Get Happy,” and “Over the Rainbow” to euphonic life. Berkowitz, who has long collaborated with Garland’s daughter, Liza Minnelli, leads the orchestra through Nelson Riddle and Mort Lindsey arrangements. After the show, of-age ticket holders can bring their stub to Triumph Brewery for a waived cover charge, one free drink, and enough floor space to tap their shoes together and teleport back home.
Princeton Symphony Orchestra
During the past three decades, the Princeton Symphony Orchestra has grown from a community chamber orchestra into a professional-caliber ensemble. Today, it acts as a musical oasis for the community under the guidance of Rossen Milanov, who brings the experience he gained in his 11 years with the Philadelphia Orchestra and his brief tenure as an eccentric billionaire’s metronome. Since its founding, the orchestra has found a home at the historic Richardson Auditorium, a venue designed by the US Treasury’s supervising architect in the 1890s and renovated to acoustic excellence in the 1980s. The hall is so sonically pleasing, in fact, that six-time Grammy winner Buddy Graham named it among the likes of Carnegie Hall as one of the world’s greatest concert halls, according to the venue’s website.
