MvVO Art Launches AD ART SHOW
My View: Norm Lewis…Show Stopper at The New York Pops Underground

It was intended to simply be an evening supporting the PopsEd music education programs of The New York Pops. Ron Schaefer who 50 years ago founded the Performing arts camp French Woods which has changed the lives of thousands of youngsters who have been campers was honored.  Steven Reineke, the brilliant and charismatic music director and conductor of The New York Pops hosted the event held at Feinstein’s/54 Below.  Then it happened……a performance by one of the world’s most exciting baritone voices and magnetic personalities. Norm Lewis sang “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables, which scopes an octave and a half in the tenor range!  Norm Lewis is the type of performer you just don’t cheer, he makes your eyes well up as his voice and theatrical ability resonate and completely consume your musical soul.  This was a very special moment at The New York Pops honoring all that’s wonderful about music and the people that make it happen.
