SUU presents Rodgers and Hammerstein concertSouthern Utah University’s music department will present a concert featuring the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein Dec. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Southern Utah Museum of Art.

“Rodgers and Hammerstein shows are the classics,” said Claire Robinson, a vocal performance major from Pleasant Grove. “Everyone knows them and loves them. Those who attend will hear their favorite musical theater hits.”

Oscar Hammerstein’s greatest success as a lyricist and librettist came when he partnered with Richard Rodgers with Broadway musicals such as “The King and I,” “South Pacific,” “The Sound of Music,” and “Oklahoma!” Rodgers continued as a composer and lyricist following the death of Hammerstein.

The proceeds from this concert series will be used as a fund to assist students with instrument repair and contribute to student travel for conferences throughout the year. This will relieve a portion of the financial requirement that faces students studying music. Upcoming concerts scheduled for the 2017–18 school year include a concert featuring songs by Johnny Mercer Feb. 13, 2017 and a concert featuring the music of Harold Arlen March 27, 2017,

Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for students. More information is available at
