The Pavilion is excited to welcome conductor Chelsea Tipton II and featured vocalists LaKisha Jones, Morgan James and Max von Essen to the Main Stage. American conductor Chelsea Tipton II has won over audiences and critics with his vibrant musicality, versatility, accessibility, and commitment to art education. Best known to millions of TV viewers as a top four finalist during the 2007 season of “American Idol,” Jones’ expressive vocals electrified the Broadway stage in the Oprah Winfrey produced, Tony Award-winning musical, The Color Purple. Morgan James is a classically trained vocalist, Broadway veteran and recording artist who has appeared in the Original Broadway casts of Motown: The Musical, Godspell, Wonderland and The Addams Family. Max von Essen recently starred on Broadway as Gleb Vaganov in Anastasia and then toured the country as Marvin in the Lincoln Center production of Falsettos. Max completed his run in An American in Paris at The Palace Theater as Henri Baurel, a performance which earned him a nomination for the 2015 Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Award.
