Colorado Springs Philharmonic helps bring in the new year

By Jen Mulson Updated: December 26, 2013 at 10:08 am

Conducted by Josep Caballe-Domenech, with vocalists Amy Sue Hardy, Jennifer DeDominici and Sally Lewis Hybl, 8 p.m. Tuesday, Pikes Peak Center, 190 S. Cascade Ave., $19-$60; 520-7469, ticketswest.com.

Ride the powerful voices of three local divas and the Colorado Springs Philharmonic into the new year.

The evening will feature jazz, classical and musical theater, sung by Amy Sue Hardy, Jennifer DeDominici and Sally Lewis Hybl, interspersed with selections by the orchestra.

"The great thing about this year is the three divas," says jazz singer Hardy.

"We're all great friends. We don't get to sing together all that often, so this is a real treat. We all have serious sides to us, but there is definitely a little prankster in each of us.

"You'll see that feistiness come out."

Selections will include: "I Could Have Danced All Night," by Lerner and Loewe; Puccini's "O mio babbino caro" from "Gianni Schicchi"; "I'm Flying" from "Peter Pan"; "Radetzky March" by Strauss; and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" by Carole King and Gerry Goffin.

"We hope it's exciting, fun, lighthearted," Hardy says. "We're not going to take ourselves too seriously, although the audience will hear some wonderful singing."
