MIDTOWN — Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan is set to light up Bryant Park Tuesday evening at the park's annual tree lighting ceremony.

The festivities, which will kick off at 7 p.m., will feature live performances, including ice skating acts on the park’s Citi Pond rink, organizers said.

The synchronized ice skating group The Haydettes, Steven Cousins, and the former U.S. Nationals Pair Champions John Zimmerman and Kyoko Ina will perform before crews illuminate the 53-foot tree’s tens of thousands of blue lights.

The off-ice ceremony performances will include McLachlan, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus and members from several Broadway casts, including "Million Dollar Quartet," "Mamma Mia!" and "Porgy & Bess."
