Rodgers and Hammerstein Celebration
A celebration of the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, this evening not only celebrates the collaboration of these two geniuses, but also includes songs of Hammerstein’s collaboration with Jerome Kern (Showboat) as well as Rodgers’ collaborations with Lorenz Hart. This wonderful evening includes show-stopping Broadway tunes such as Climb Every Mountain, Oklahoma, Some Enchanted Evening, All The Things You Are, and many others!
"What wonderful performers and what beautiful songs from the golden era of Broadway as VSO's Pops Series kicked off in style last October 4th with the music of Rodgers & Hammerstein. William Michals' resonant baritone voice was fantastic in his rendition of "Ol' Man River", and the audience enjoyed the duet singing of "People Say We're in Love" by Vroman and LeBrecque. "You'll Never Walk Alone" was the encore number, and the three vocalists and the UBC Opera Ensemble gave their all singing this classic. As always, in VSO performances, there was a standing ovation for this magnificent show."
