Please join me as we rediscover the great Broadway composer Harold Rome (1908-1993) -- whose fantastic songs have delighted audiences since the late 1930s. Harold Rome's most famous shows include: "Fanny," "Wish You Were Here," and "Pins and Needles." In addition to his talents as a composer, Rome, a Yale graduate, was also a fine painter and had trained as an architect. Throughout his life, he was also a dedicated social activist - lending his name to many important causes. You will hear incredibly beautiful music and learn about one of the great composers of Broadway's Golden Age.
