His tour work includes “Sweeney Todd,” “The Light in the Piazza,” “Mamma Mia!,” and “The Lion King.” Currently, Einhorn’s work can be heard on the touring production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “The Sound of Music.”  Einhorn’s Broadway credits include “Holiday Inn,” “Woody Allen’s Bullets Over Broadway,” Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Cinderella,” “Evita,” and more. He recently served as music director and conductor for the Châtelet Theatre’s production of “Sondheim’s Passion” in Paris and in April 2016 Einhorn made his New York Philharmonic debut.
 
The vocalists for this performance include: Stephanie Gerson, who has wowed large audiences with her voice starring in lead roles in regional theater and on national tours; Lisa Livesay, a past performer in Hong Kong Disneyland where she sang the songs of Beauty and the Beast’s Belle in “The Golden Mickeys”; Andrew Johnson, a Disney kid at heart who is humbled and honored to share the music and magic from the stage; and Aaron Phillips, an accomplished actor/singer/voice-over talent.
 
This performance is a part of the Utah Symphony | Utah Opera’s 14th Season of the Deer Valley® Music Festival. The Festival is comprised of 16 performances over six weeks. The following week will be the conclusion of the festival.
