Harvey Granat Presents | George Gershwin

Harvey Granat and Robert Kimball

Thu, Apr 23, 11:30 am, $42

In his brief 37 years, he left a musical footprint that has become a vital part of our cultural heritage. Harvey Granat will share and interpret examples from his most classic works, including songs from Porgy and Bess, Funny Face, and Shall We Dance.

MAGICAL MUSICAL PAIRINGS

Rodgers & Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Loewe

Mon, Apr 27, Tue, Apr 28 and Wed, Apr 29, 2 pm, $60 for 3 events

This three-part series of lectures with video and musical highlights will explore three of the greatest musical pairings in American stage history, Rodgers & Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein, and Lerner & Loewe.

Performer, producer, and educator Harvey Granat will explore the musical genius of Richard Rodgers in each of his long-term partnerships, first with Lorenz Hart, and later with Oscar Hammerstein. While both partnerships were incredibly prolific and successful, each one produced distinctly different sounds of music and lyrics. Take a closer look at (and listen to) songs from shows like Rodgers and Hart's Pal Joey, Babes in Arms, Jumbo and A Connecticut Yankee and discover how they compare to works in Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, The Kind and I, and The Sound of Music.

Hear those songs contrasted with the work of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, a pair just as successful, with settings ranging from a Scottish village to a mining camp in California to King Author's court. Listen to some of their most well-known collaborations including pieces from Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady, and Camelot.

Granat has presented his popular series Harvey Granat Presents the American Songbook for years and has now created this special online series featuring seldom seen video clips and his own performance of these great works.
