Description : The Wilmington Symphony Orchestra is pleased to welcome back Tony Award Winner Linda Lavin in the headlining role for a special Symphony Pops performance! Lavin will be accompanied by pianist Billy Stritch, bassist Tom Hubbard, jazz violinist Aaron Weinstein, and drummer (and husband) Steve Bakunas. Sure to be a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, the concert takes place on Saturday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Wilson Center.

Join us for an evening of great music in the style of Arthur Fiedler's Boston Pops! In his fifty-year tenure as Pops Conductor, Fiedler established the Boston Pops as a national icon. His programs were an extremely successful blend of classical and popular, - - from jazz to pop, film music to Broadway, light classics to the Great American Songbook, - - while also showcasing popular artists alongside up-and-coming young American soloists.

Linda Lavin's Broadway career began in 1962 in the musical A Family Affair. In 1967 she appeared as Gloria Thorpe in a television version of the musical Damn Yankees. By 1975, after various guest appearances on episodic television series, she landed a recurring role on Barney Miller, which she left after two years to accept the lead role in Alice. The hit show aired for nine years. This was only the beginning of a long and lucrative career.

Also taking a turn in the spotlight will be the inspiring performances of the winners of the Wilmington Symphony's 2016 Student Concerto Competition: Junior Division, Aria DiLoreto, violin; High School Division, Daniel Cheng, piano; and UNCW Division, Quentin Lovette, baritone.
