The Golden Age of Broadway
with Paul Knight
Friday 23 – Sunday 25 June 2017
Course No. 3232
Solo Study Course
Between 1943 and 1959, the American Broadway was in a Golden Age, producing musicals still loved and performed to this day. It was not just Rodgers & Hammerstein, but also Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Lerner & Loewe, Cole Porter, and Frank Loesser who were all frantically creating a new Musical Theatre that pioneered a new form of narrative storytelling, bringing about a new age of musical classics.
Oklahoma, On The Town, Carousel, Guys and Dolls, My Fair Lady and The Sound of Music, to name a few!
Paul Knight has huge experience working on this repertoire as a Music Director in the West End, acquiring a staggering breadth of knowledge during those years. Bring a minimum of two pieces to work on over the weekend.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
