ANNAPOLIS, MD – Singing twin brothers, Will and Anthony Nunziata, will join Maestro José-Luis Novo and the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra for A Broadway Holiday pops concert on Friday, December 19, 2014 at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.  The orchestra’s annual Holiday Pops program is a wonderful blend of Broadway show tunes and seasonal favorites.  The 8:00pm performance is presented by PNC Wealth Management.

Will and Anthony Nunziata won acclaim for their performances with the Cleveland Pops and Colorado Symphony Orchestra as well as their appearances on The Rachael Ray Show, Good Morning America and NBC’s Columbus Day Parade broadcast.  Noted for their soaring tenor voices, comedic flair and energetic stage presence, their holiday program celebrates the joys of life, music and family.

A Broadway Holiday is reminiscent of the classic Christmas Specials of Bing Crosby with a contemporary flair.  The brothers will be featured in Broadway favorites including “This Could Be The Start of Something Big,” “Once In A Lifetime,” and “What Kind of Fool Am I/Who Can I Turn To.”  They will also offer fresh takes on classic Christmas songs such as, “We Need A Little Christmas,” “O Holy Night,” and “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.”

PNC Wealth Management is again serving as Presenting Sponsor of the ASO’s Holiday Pops.  “The presence of PNC Wealth Management in downtown Annapolis gives us the opportunity to be a part of the community and to support music and arts,” said Dan Winsky, Managing Director for the PNC Wealth Management Team in Annapolis.  PNC also sponsored the ASO’s free outdoor Pops In The Park concert this past Labor Day Weekend.
