Richard Rodgers’ legacy included not only his sophisticated, street-wise songs written with Lorenz Hart and his groundbreaking work with Oscar Hammerstein III, but also the indispensable music of his descendants: daughter Mary Rodgers (Once Upon a Mattress) and grandson Adam Guettel (The Light in the Piazza). Their songs are like a hundred-year history of American mores, from the Jazz Age to the Information Era. Filled with intelligence, humanity and breathtaking melody, the Rodgers family sings of the America we know—and the America we dream of.
NYFOS is thrilled that the program will introduce new unpublished songs by Guettel from the musicals he's currently working on.
Artists: Soprano Lauren Worsham, mezzo-soprano Mary Testa, tenor Hal Cazalet, baritone John Brancy
