Pasadena, CA – Principal POPS Conductor Michael Feinstein and the Pasadena POPS close the summer season with Hollywood Blockbusters on Saturday, September 9 at the Los Angeles County Arboretum. Feinstein has curated a celebration of songs that made Hollywood a hit parade with music by beloved film composers from Henry Mancini to John Williams. Highlights include music from 42nd Street, To Kill a Mockingbird, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Pink Panther, E.T. and so much more.

Feinstein will welcome a star-studded lineup to sing the hits of Hollywood, with two-time Tony Award® winner, Broadway and TV legend Christine Ebersole returning to the POPS stage. Best known for her acclaimed roles in Grey Gardens and 42nd Street, Ebersole brings her formidable talent to sing Hollywood’s biggest hits. The multi-talented, Grammy®-nominated Cheyenne Jackson also returns to the POPS to show off his staggering vocal range. Most recently seen on The Masked Singer, Fox’s Call Me Kat, and as Hades in Disney’s Descendants 3, Cheyenne has also starred in the critically-acclaimed HBO biopic of Liberace, Behind the Candelabra, and appeared in Glee and 30 Rock among others.
