The panel for In Stereophonic Sound includes a mix of record company executives and musical theatre performers. Those scheduled to take part in the event include Sh-K-Boom Records co-founders Kurt Deutsch and Sherie Rene Scott (of Aida fame); Decca Broadway’s senior director Brian Drutman; and Seymour Red Press, a veteran music coordinator for several Broadway musicals. The panel discussion is presented in conjunction with Original Cast Recordings, the ongoing exhibition on view at the Vincent Astor Gallery at the New York Public Library through Sept. 6. That exhibition — drawing on the Library’s Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound — explores the development of musical theatre recordings from the earliest days to the present.
In Stereophonic Sound is free and open to the public and will be held at 3 PM in the Library’s Bruno Walter Auditorium, 111 Amsterdam Avenue at 65th Street.
