"There's nothing like the sound of a classic golden age Broadway orchestra: soaring trumpets, lush strings, swinging saxophones. The enduring commitment at Encores! to present shows with their original orchestration, brought to life by The Encores! Orchestra, is a hallmark of our series. a?? a?? Often there is a considerable amount of work that goes into restoring a show's original orchestrations. There have been shows in our history where very little original material existed; full scores and entire orchestrations were lost. a?? a?? The shows featured this week represent our unique contributions to the preservation of great music written for the stage. "a?? -Rob Berman, Encores! Music Director a?? a?? For the first major score restoration in the history of Encores!, there were no surviving orchestrations and not much to go on besides a brief original cast recording. Music Director Rob Fisher asked the great Ralph Burns to write new orchestrations and the results were stunning. a?? a?? ?: Yvette Cason "It's A Woman's Prerogative" a?? Encores!
