This year's concert, entitled Wall to Wall Broadway: The Street Where We Live, is scheduled for March 16. Details of the 12-hour music marathon will be announced at a later date. Admission to the concert is free, and patrons may sample a few moments or stay several hours. Symphony Space began its Wall to Wall series in 1978 with Wall to Wall Bach. Later versions of the marathon concept have focused on Mozart, Beethoven, John Cage, Aaron Copland, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin and Richard Rodgers. Wall to Wall Stephen Sondheim was presented in March 2005; excerpts were subsequently released on CD.
Wall to Wall Broadway will play the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre at Symphony Space, located in Manhattan at 2537 Broadway at 95th Street. For more information, visit www.symphonyspace.org.
