If You Love Musical Theater, You'll Love this Spring at Carnegie Hall
Over the coming weeks, Carnegie Hall offers two spectacular ways to experience the art of musical theater: a one-night only performance of The Sound of Music and a six-week online education project for musical theater students.

Carnegie Hall, in association with Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem Company, presents The Sound of Music. Sure to be a magical evening of enchanting, memorable music, this presentation follows in the footsteps of other landmark musical productions at the Hall, including Carousel, South Pacific, and Show Boat.
Directed by Gary Griffin, with choreography by Joshua Bergasse, the star-studded cast includes Laura Osnes (Maria Rainer), Tony Goldwyn (Captain Georg von Trapp), Brooke Shields (Elsa Schraeder), Patrick Page (Max Detweiler), Stephanie Blythe (The Mother Abbess), and Cotter Smith (Herr Zeller). The Orchestra of St. Luke's, under the direction of Rob Fisher, along with women of the Mansfield University Concert Choir and members of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, join in for this thrilling performance of a heartwarming classic.
