Oscar Hammerstein: Out of My Dreams
March 11 at 7 p.m.
The most acclaimed lyricists and librettists of the 20th century, Hammerstein worked in the theater for over 40 years, writing the lyrics for over a thousand songs and the books for 45 operettas and musicals. His legendary musicals include Rose Marie (1924), Show Boat (1927), Oklahoma (1943), Carousel (1945), South Pacific (1949), The King and I (1951) and The Sound of Music (1959). After working in the theater for over 20 years, Oscar Hammerstein teamed up with Richard Rodgers and their collaboration changed the American musical forever, transforming it from lighthearted entertainment to real life stories told by believable characters, often with an important theme or underlying message.
Titanic: Band of Courage
March 11 at 8:30 p.m.
The dramatic story of eight musicians who were brought together on the only voyage of the Titanic and whose names will forever be linked for their extraordinary courage. The program features new recordings of 18 songs taken from the officially issued "White Star Songbook" that was provided to the musicians and first class passengers. Each composition was recorded in the style, arrangement and instrumentation as it was heard on the Titanic - many of the songs from the last night, played by the musicians in an effort to provide some peace, calm and dignity to those who were facing death.
Pete Seeger's 90th Birthday Party
March 12 at 7 p.m.
Celebrate a career spanning more than half a century. In 2009 legendary folk artist and political activist Pete Seeger turned 90, and hosted this musical party that features Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Arlo Guthrie, Joan Baez, Ani DiFranco, Taj Mahal, Ben Harper, Peggy Seeger, Dave Matthews, and many others. Born to a large family of musicians, young Peter first learned to play the ukulele, graduating to the five-string banjo in the mid-1930s, ultimately mastering the instrument and in the process, galvanizing the American folk music movement. A pioneer of protest music, Seeger's anti-Vietnam War songs, including the now famous "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Turn, Turn, Turn," as well his interpretation of the Civil Rights anthem, "We Shall Overcome," garnered mainstream attention in the 1960's, revitalizing the genre and paving the way for countless other activist musicians-including Bob Dylan-to achieve widespread acclaim.
