The seminar continues its fun tradition of presenting a delightful concert version of a popular operetta or Broadway musical. The project serves as the master’s thesis for working music educators from around the world who participate in the Summer Conducting Seminar for three consecutive summers.
The ‘New 1925 Musical’ No, No, Nanette is a lighthearted romp showcasing the charming music of Vincent Youmans. The wacky story involves three couples sharing a cottage in Atlantic City in the midst of a blackmail scheme, with plenty of deception, romantic mishaps, and comical misunderstandings. The score includes two of the best-known songs in musical theatre – "Tea for Two" and "I Want to Be Happy" – as well as "I've Confessed To The Breeze," "You Can Dance With Any Girl" and "Take a Little One-Step."
