Utah Symphony to Perform Songs of Rodgers and Hammerstein, 3/28-29

The Utah Symphony will commemorate the lives of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein in an enchanted evening featuring selections from their greatest hits on March 28 and 29 at Abravanel Hall.

The Utah Symphony led by Principal Pops Conductor Jerry Steichen are joined by the vocal talents of soprano Lisa Vroman, tenor Gary Mauer, baritone William Michals and the Utah Symphony Chorus in a concert of hits from the classic musicals written by the undisputed Kings of Broadway.

Rodgers and Hammerstein started writing award-winning musicals together in the 1940s. Their productions reinvented the way musical theatre was performed and earned 34 Tony Awards, 15 Academy Awards, the Pulitzer Prize, and 2 Grammy Awards. This concert includes songs the two wrote before joining forces and those they wrote together, including highlights from "The King and I", "The Sound of Music", "South Pacific" and "Oklahoma" - their very first collaboration.
