This Saturday is the last Festival on the Green event with the California Philharmonic at Santa Anita Racetrack for the 2013 season.
From the Broadway National Touring Company, Les Misérables stars Randal Keith and Melissa Lyons will be special guests. Lyons was born and raised in Orange County, attended UCLA, and played Lady Larken in Once Upon a Mattress, directed by the divine Carol Burnett. She was on the road with Les Misérables for three years and is recognized by little girls as the singing voice of Barbie in the animated features.
The Cal Phil Chorale will also join the orchestra in songs from Leonard Bernstein’s Candide and Wonderful Town. “Orchestral Symphonic Dances from West Side Story” will also be performed.
