Kristin Chenoweth Headlines Sinfonia 10th Anniversary Gala Nov 13

November 3, 2015 by SoWal Staff

Keeping the tempo on the Emerald Coast’s cultural scene since its founding in 2005, Sinfonia Gulf Coast will mark its milestone 10th season as the region’s only fully professional symphony orchestra by offering a stellar lineup of concerts featuring the orchestra with world-renowned guest artists and a 10th anniversary gala event headlined by an Emmy and Tony Award-winning singer and actress.

Maintaining the nonprofit’s tradition of “symphony redefined,” the Sinfonia 10th Anniversary Gala Event, to be held on Friday, Nov. 13 at the Emerald Coast Convention Center, will feature the incomparable star of stage, screen and TV, Kristin Chenoweth. 

Winner of the 2009 Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on the ABC series “Pushing Daisies,” and a 2010 and 2011 Emmy and a 2011 People’s Choice Award nominee for her role as the quirky former songstress April Rhodes on Fox’s hit comedy, “Glee,” Chenoweth has become a star in her own right on television. However, theater lovers may best remember her for her 2003 Tony Award-nominated origination of the role Glinda the Good Witch in “Wicked,” and 1999 Tony-winning performance in “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

The main performance starts at 8 p.m. Single and table tickets for the 10th Anniversary Gala range from $49.50 to $300 each.
