Broadway star and Tony and Emmy winner Kristin Chenoweth will be the star attraction this summer at the 27th annual Corporate Night benefit concert sponsored by the League of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association. At the fund-raiser, Chenoweth will perform with symphony members led by Broadway musical director and conductor Mary Mitchell Campbell.

The 7:30 p.m. June 20 event will showcase the acclaimed entertainer singing a range of favorites — both from Broadway and classic Hollywood films.

Corporate Night 2016 is being chaired by CSOA trustee and United Airlines chief marketing officer Thomas F. O’Toole, and the event chair for the League of the CSOA is Barbara Zutovsky.

Highlights of Chenoweth’s career include originating the role of Glinda in “Wicked,” which earned her a Tony, as did her portrayal of Sally in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.”

Recent Broadway credits include the revival of “On the Twentieth Century.” On television, Chenoweth earned an Emmy for “Pushing Daisies,” and she was Emmy-nominated for her performances on “Glee.” Among her notable concert appearances have been those at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Opera House, the Hollywood Bowl and the Sydney Opera House.

Concert-only tickets are available to the public ($65 to $199); concertgoers can also purchase tickets for a special preconcert dinner and concert package, which are $250 each. Tickets are available in person at Symphony Center, 220 S. Michigan; by calling the Symphony Center Box Office at (312) 294-3000, or online at cso.org.
