Exploring Broadway: Pitter Patter

Thursday, February 17 & 24

1-2:15pm (PT), 2-3:15pm (MT), 3-4:15pm (CT), 4-5:!5pm (ET)

on Zoom

The “patter song” has been a staple of theater since Mozart, gaining in popularity in 19th-century comic opera and operetta. In the time since, these delightful, fast-tempo, tongue-twisting songs have wended their ways into 20th-century musicals.

Join James Sokol on a journey, which includes audio & video performance clips, of these potentially scene-stealing songs from Broadway’s “Golden Age” gems to contemporary favorites.

Come for the songs; stay for the fun!

The Fine Print:

Fortunately, we’ve had very few issues, but just to be clear…

Registrants are requested to make sure the email w/link has arrived by the evening of Feb. 16th. If the email does not arrive, please see “Troubleshooting” below.

The email w/link will be re-sent to all registrants about 2-hours prior to the event. NB: However, if it landed somewhere other than in your inbox upon registration, it will probably do the same later.
