The project Broadway Lights brings the dazzling lights of Broadway and an influx of its most popular melodies to the stage

This performance will mark the second time it has been played during the three decades of the Czech National Symphony Orchestra's activity on the Czech and international scene.

The previous concert was conducted by Carl Davis, who passed away in August 2023. The orchestra wants to dedicate this concert to him.

The orchestra's conductor Steven Mercurio, who lives in New York, is a frequent guest on the Broadway stage and in the Philadelphia Opera. The soloists for this concert are from America's unique Jeremy Winston Chorale. And supporting them is none other than American tenor Richard Troxell, who recorded his 2015 album Classic Broadway in collaboration with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and Steven Mercurio.
