April 23rd 7:00pm – DGF Toasts: Stephen Schwartz’s 70th Birthday

Join the Dramatists Guild Foundation on April 23 at the Hudson Theatre as we celebrate Stephen Schwartz’s 70th Birthday with a star-filled concert. Watch as Broadway’s best toast Stephen for his commitment to the craft and the community with performances from across his four-decade repertory of songs. This is the debut of the new concert series, DGF: Toasts, honoring the life and work of American theater’s greatest writers. Proceeds from the concert go to supporting the Dramatists Guild Foundation (DGF) a national charity that fuels the future of American theater by supporting the writers who create it. The Dramatists Guild Foundation fosters playwrights, composers, lyricists, and bookwriters at all stages of their careers. DGF sponsors educational programs; provides awards, grants, and stipends; offers free space to create new works; and gives emergency aid to writers in need.

TESTIMONY released by Broadway Records

Stephen Schwartz’s TESTIMONY was inspired by the It Gets Better Project. Judith Clurman’s Essential Voices USA (EVUSA), led by conductor Judith Clurman, performed the world premiere of the mixed chorus version, at Carnegie Hall, in 2013. Judith’s Essential Voices USA recorded “Testimony” in the spring of 2017, with James Cunningham at the piano. Four of her students from the Manhattan School of Music MT Vocal Ensemble joined members of EVUSA on the recording. Proceeds from the sales of this recording will enable EVUSA to present anti-bullying workshops in NYC public schools.
