“It is a dream come true for The New York Pops to be honoring none other than Cyndi Lauper this year,” said Reineke, music director and conductor. “We are so excited to explore the huge canon of work she has created and to work with her to produce a mega-hit concert. From ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ all the way up to Cyndi’s Tony Award-winning score for Kinky Boots, there’s just so much great material. This is exactly who we are at The New York Pops—‘a different kind of orchestra.’”

The concert will be followed by a black-tie dinner and dance at the Mandarin Oriental New York. Tickets for the concert will be available to the public in January 2019.
