After working as a professional violinist in and around Chicago, Sheldon Harnick (b. 1924) moved to New York in 1950 to pursue a career in the musical theater. His collaboration with composer Jerry Bock produced the Broadway classics Fiddler on the Roof (1964 Tony Award), She Loves Me (1963 Grammy Award) and Fiorello (1959 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award), among others. Harnick has also provided the librettos for many opera productions, among them Cyrano (with Jack Beeson in 1994) and Coyote Tales (with Henry Mollicone in 1998). Led by noted music director and conductor Rob Fisher, this show features an appearance by Sheldon Harnick.
