A bunch of Broadway
Todd Ellison: Classic Broadway
Todd Ellison: It's a name you may not be familiar with unless you're a huge musical-theater buff. But the music director whose Broadway credits include 42nd Street, La Cage aux Folles and Monty Python's Spamalot—and who was called “electric” by The New York Times—will be visiting the Harris Center for the Arts for the first time on Sunday, September 8. In a performance titled Todd Ellison: Classic Broadway, the conductor will be joined by Broadway vocalists Ashley Blanchet, David Larson, Christopher Sieber and Tony Award winner Beth Leavel to perform selections from Wicked, Memphis and Once. Not only is Ellison currently conducting Annie on Broadway, he's also a classically trained pianist and symphony orchestra conductor who tours the nation performing special concert-hall engagements like this one. Talk about an overachiever. Sunday, September 8, 2 p.m.; $12-$45. Harris Center for the Arts, 10 College Parkway in Folsom; (916) 608-6888; www.harriscenter.net.
