Special Projects

Broadway in Concert

Over the past 23 years, I have purposefully published 3 musical theater medleys that together, cover the complete history of Broadway music up to 2016. This “tripych” of publications are…

100 Years of Broadway

Opening Night

Broadway Musical Magic

Combining these 3 medleys creates an entire evening of Broadway entertainment that I’m calling, “Broadway in Concert”. There are 84 songs in all and around 90 min. of music.

All of this music is published by the Hal Leonard Corp.  Halleonard.com/choral
