American Musical Geniuses

Description

This course will focus on the careers of some of
the leading composers and lyricists who have given
us some of our greatest stage and film musicals. A
biographical approach will be used to describe the history
of musicals and to highlight the contributions of
composers such as Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole
Porter and George Gershwin, along with lyricists such
as Oscar Hammerstein and Alan Jay Lerner. A special
session will be devoted to Stephen Sondheim in honor
of his 90th birthday. This multimedia course will draw on
many sources to present great performances, including
those by the composers and lyricists themselves.
