The Eastman School of Music is proud to present Kristin Chenoweth for a sold-out performance in Rochester tonight. Expected to be a highlight of the "Eastman Presents" series, the Tony and Emmy Award winner's performance will be at 8 p.m. inside the Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre.

"We are honored to have such an incredibly versatile and accomplished talent like Kristin Chenoweth as a headliner of the 'Eastman Presents' series," said Keith C. Elder, director of concert activities at Eastman School of Music. "It's going to be a special and spectacular night."

A world-renowned singer and actress, Chenoweth's career spans film, television, voiceover and stage. As a veteran of the concert stage, she has performed to sold-out crowds in concert halls across the globe.

She won a Tony for "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown," while her movie appearances include roles in "The Pink Panther," "Deck the Halls," "Bewitched," "Running with Scissors" and "The Boy Next Door." On television, Chenoweth was seen in an Emmy-winning role on "Pushing Daisies" as well as in "Glee," "The West Wing" and PBS specials.
