Music Appreciation for All Ages
Rodgers and Hammerstein
Learn more about Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, an influential and innovative American musical theatre writing team. With Rodgers composing the music and Hammerstein writing the lyrics, five of their shows, Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music, were outstanding successes. Among the many accolades their shows (and film versions) garnered were thirty-four Tony Awards, fifteen Academy Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, and two Grammy Awards.
This program is led by Joan Jamison, MME, and will feature a different music program each month. A short DVD will provide basic information and major musical works will be presented and discussed.
