William Cosel, Executive Producer

William Cosel has produced EVENING AT POPS for 30 years, capturing a new appeal for every year of performance. Cosel is a freelance producer-director with a rich history in prestigious events of culture. His experience includes: Andrea Bocelli: Sacred Arias from the Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva in Rome, Italy; In Performance at the White House hosted by James Naughton, with Patti LuPone, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Jennifer Holliday; My Favorite Broadway: The Leading Ladies, a gala evening at Carnegie Hall hosted by Julie Andrews, featuring Liza Minnelli, Rosie O'Donnell, and the Rockettes; and The Three Tenors with Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti from Giant's Stadium.

Cosel studied theology and philosophy in anticipation of a missionary career before discovering his keen interest in television. Through a graduate scholarship program sponsored by WGBH Boston, he studied communications at Boston University. In 1962, Cosel began a career with WGBH producing and directing children's programs along with jazz and classical music shows, eventually being appointed director of program production.
