Two Broadway stars will be singing favorites from hit musicals like "Chicago," "Ragtime," "Phantom of the Opera," "My Fair Lady" and, of course, "Wicked."

Emily Rozek was most recently seen starring as Glinda in the Broadway hit "Wicked." Upon her graduation from the Boston Conservatory, she made her professional debut as the principle role of Winnie Tate in "Annie Get Your Gun," starring Bernadette Peters.

She went on to perform the lead roles of Millie Dillmount and Miss Dorothy in Broadway's "Thoroughly Modern Millie." She has also been on National Broadway tours such as "Sunset Boulevard" and "South Pacific."

Julie Reiber thrilled theater audiences as Elphaba, Broadway's most iconic leading lady of the new millennium.

She first performed the role with the original Los Angeles cast of "Wicked" and later played the famous green girl on the stage of the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway.

Currently, Reiber stars as Marion in "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" at the Palace Theatre. She has also been seen on Broadway as Brooklyn in "Bklyn," Natalie/Ed in "All Shook Up" and working along side Harry Connick Jr. in Michael Mayer's revival of "On a Clear Day, You Can See Forever."

Stephen Squires, ESO resident conductor and music director finalist, will lead the orchestra with these two vocalists.

Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 27, at Elgin's Hemmens Cultural Center, 45 Symphony Way.
