Manhattan Concert Productions extends our sincerest gratitude to our veterans. We are indebted to your service and sacrifice, and are eternally thankful for your defense of our freedoms. ⠀

As we pay our respects today, we also reminisce about our 2019 "America the Beautiful" production, where we paid homage to our veterans and current service members with music of American history.

Need a little "pick-me-up" this week? 😉 Well Laura Osnes has you covered! Her recital "The Paths Not Taken" is streaming tomorrow, November 6th at 7 PM with Birdland Jazz Club club (link in their bio).⠀

We were so lucky to have her in our 2017 production of "Crazy for You" at Lincoln Center, with yet another all-star cast including Tony Yazbeck (did you recognize him here despite his disguise?)!

"If you think it, want it, dream it, then it's real."

It may be over eight months since our last live production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," but we can still feel the energy from that spectacular evening!

With a stellar cast, crew, orchestra, and of course our amazing guest choirs, it was a night to remember.

MCP has welcomed Dr. Hasseler as a guest clinician on multiple occasions, and as you can see, we are very lucky for that!

Dr. Lynda Hasseler and the Capital University Chapel Choir provide us some Friday inspiration in their stunning rehearsal video of them singing Undine S. Moore's "We Shall Walk Through the Valley". 🤯

Did you know that Jean-Philippe Rameau was one of Debussy's favorite composers? Víkingur Ólafsson's newest album explores the connection between the two, despite nearly 200 years of separation:
