Stepping Out
An afternoon with Linda Eder and the Nassau Pops
The Broadway star joins the orchestra for a gala concert
By Karen Bloom
Actress-singer Linda Eder, who is a frequent performer at Tilles Center, joins the Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra for the first time.

The Nassau Pops Symphony Orchestra turns to Broadway for its 10th anniversary gala concert benefiting the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Nassau (UCPN). Linda Eder, known for her starring role in the musical “Jekyll & Hyde,” joins the accomplished orchestra for an afternoon of theatrical delights.
Maestro Louis Panacciulli and his Nassau Pops are ready to share some of the best of Broadway, at this special edition of their annual concert, in support of their 10-year relationship with UCPN, on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 3 p.m.
“This is a milestone for us and we are thrilled that Linda Eder is going to be part of it,” Panacciulli said. “It is humbling for our local orchestra to work with someone of her caliber. “
Eder has been acclaimed as one of the greatest contemporary voices of our time . With a repertoire that spans Broadway, standards, pop, country and jazz, she has performed for sold-out crowds at venues across the country and throughout Europe. In her role as the tragic character, Lucy, in the musical “Jekyll & Hyde,” Eder blew the roof off of New York’s Plymouth Theater (now renamed the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater) each night for over two years as she belted out the musical’s signature songs, notably “Someone Like You” and “A New Life.”
She has established herself as a popular and accomplished interpreter of pop standards and theatrical songs since she launched her recording career in 1991 with her self-titled debut album. Her numerous releases include “And So Much More,” “It’s No Secret Anymore,” “Christmas Stays the Same,” “Gold,” “Storybook,” “Broadway My Way,” and “By Myself: The Songs of Judy Garland.”
A favorite with area audiences, and a frequent performer at Tilles Center, Eder brings some Broadway glamour to the Nassau Pops’ yearly concert.
“We are very fortunate that she is able to join us,” Panacciulli said. “It’s very exciting for us and for the audience. She’s a tremendous talent and has always been a big draw at Tilles Center.”
