 Notes & Reviews
 
Dina Menzel has a diverse career on the stage, in films and television, and in music. The beloved Broadway star, best known for her work in the Broadway musical and film adaption of RENT, her Tony Award-winning performance as Elphaba, the green-faced Wicked Witch of the West in WICKED, and her recurring role in the hit TV series GLEE, has spent much of the past two years crisscrossing the country, headlining with dozens of symphony orchestras. This past November, on the second-to-last stop on Menzels 2011 itinerary, the star recorded her forthcoming PBS special IDINA LIVE: BAREFOOT AT THE SYMPHONY. on March 6th, Concord Music Group will release the accompanying album to the special. The special, and the album, were captured in Toronto at Koerner Hall, a beautifully modernist, acoustically blessed, 1,100-seat space literally carved out of the citys historic Royal Conservatory of Music headquarters. Menzel performs with the 52-piece Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, one of Canadas premiere symphony orchestras, under the direction of guest conductor Marvin Hamlisch (or as Menzel prefers to call him, the legendary Marvin Hamlisch) and her equally accomplished music director and pianist, Rob Mounsey (who has worked with everyone from Paul Simon and Steely Dan to Madonna, Usher and Rihanna).
