March 6th: Happy Birthday Stephen Schwartz! 🎂
On March 6th 2020, Composer-Lyricist Stephen Schwartz will celebrate his 72nd Birthday!
What a career! For Broadway he gave us Godspell, Pippin, Wicked; for Disney he gave us Pocahontas and The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. And then there's Prince Of Egypt, Children of Eden, Rags and The Baker's Wife. Phew! Amazing.
Teachers - I highly recommend purchasing The Stephen Schwartz Songbook - it's worth every penny.
Here are five of his songs that I think should be performed MORE because they are fabulous. Enjoy! (Click titles for sheet music.)
Proud Lady - The Baker's Wife *perfect for BIG voices and BIG acting choices*
Just Around The Riverbend - Pocahontas *a lovely up tempo with passion and spark*
Extraordinary - Pippin *this up tempo solo is SO fun*
Lion Tamer - The Magic Show *a FABULOUS ballad with incredible lilt and rhythm*
Someday - Hunchback Of Notre Dame *a wonderful anthem suitable for so many voice types and occasions*
