Pops Goes Vegas with Jack Everly!

Las Vegas comes to the NAC for Jack Everlys final CTV Pops concerts of the season, June 19-21

Ottawa, Canada The glitz, glamour and show-biz of Las Vegas come to Ottawa in a high-rolling new concert led by Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly from Thursday, June 19 to Saturday, June 21 at 20:00 in Southam Hall as Pops Goes Vegas. For these final CTV Pops concerts of the season, Jack and the NAC Orchestra spin the musical roulette wheel and audiences hit the jackpot with classic tunes like Luck Be a Lady Tonight, Hey Big Spender and more. You may be in Southam Hall, but youll swear youre on The Strip! To add to the fun, there will be a casino in the NAC Foyer before and after each concert with everyone getting a fistful of NAC fun money to play.

The cast of high rollers includes Broadway leading man, Joe Cassidy; the Ol Blue Eyes star Brian Duprey of the hit Las Vegas production of The Rat Pack; the comedic and beautiful Alison Briner, and Mr. Showman himself, Martin Preston as the legendary Liberace. The music, the celebrities, the showgirls, the singers and dancers are all on stage in this fast-paced show of musical hit after hit. It is all under the baton of Jack Everly whose innovative, entertaining programs have made him the toast of the Ottawa Pops scene. And as Jack himself says: What happens in the concert, stays in the concert!
