Program Notes for The Sound of Music (Selections From…)
Composer: Richard Rodgers

Richard Rodgers published his first song at age 15.
Following the death of his first collaborator, Lorenz Hart, Rodgers teamed with Oscar Hammerstein to produce nine Broadway shows, including Oklahoma, Carousel, South Pacific, Pal Joey, The King and I, Flower Drum Song, State Fair and the show whose medley you are about to hear, The Sound of Music.
In this medley, arranged by Jim Christensen, you will hear the title theme, Do-Re-Mi, A Few Of My Favorite Things, and Climb Every Mountain.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the ******** band now plays for you a medley of songs from The Sound of Music.
