Gary Griffin to Direct Carnegie Hall Concert of The Sound of Music logo
Gary Griffin
Gary Griffin will direct a concert performance of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II's The Sound of Music at Carnegie Hall on Tuesday, April 24 at 8pm. Rob Fisher will serve as musical director, conducting the Orchestra of St. Luke's. Casting will be announced at a later date.

Featuring music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hammerstein, a libretto by Howard Lindsay & Russel Crouse, adapted by David Ives, and based on Maria Augusta Trapp's autobiography, The Sound of Music tells the timeless story of Maria, Captain von Trapp, and their singing family. Set in Salzburg, Austria, on the eve of World War II, the score includes "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Edelweiss," the title song, and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain."

The performance will benefit Carnegie Hall's music education programs.

Griffin directed the Broadway productions of The Apple Tree and The Color Purple, as well as the City Center Encores! production of Lost in the Stars earlier this year.
