The Hills are Alive! Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of The Sound of Music film
Date: January 22, 2014
When The Sound of Music was released in 1965 it took the world by storm, winning five Oscars, including Best Picture, and two Golden Globe awards for Best Picture and Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy. For theatergoers of the day, the film was that rare combination of emotional storyline, sticky melodies that left one whistling for days, and stunningly beautiful scenes of Salzburg. The film has gone on to multiple re-releases, and its famous scenes and musical numbers continue to thrill millions to this day.
With support from the Salzburg Tourist Board, Music Celebrations is pleased to announce a special once-in-a-lifetime choral extravaganza to take place in June 2015 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film release of The Sound of Music. The program will feature a parade of legendary hits from The Sound of Music, including Edelweiss and Do-Re-Mi, as well as classics from other Rodgers and Hammerstein’s masterworks, such as South Pacific, The King and I, Carousel, and more. Artistic direction will be led by Emmy- and Grammy- nominated conductor and vocal educator, Judith Clurman.
