ABOUT THE SHOW

A Tribute to the Legacy of the "Father of  Broadway

By 2004, only four Victor Herbert shows had been recorded; today, 39 of them have, thanks to the Comic Opera Guild. As the major producer of the works of this important American composer, it is only fitting that the Guild should mount a concert of his music on the 100th Anniversary of his passing.

This concert will mark several milestones. It will honor the Father of Broadway and will also mark the return of the Comic Opera Guild to the Michigan Theater after 27 years. The event will feature soloists with orchestra and chorus, conducted by the country’s foremost expert on Herbert’s music, Adam Aceto. The program will include selections from shows the Guild has revived, with orchestrations newly restored by Mr. Aceto. He will be joined by eight professional soloists who have starred in our previous recordings, including Kim Dolanski, Irina Medvedeva, Kirsten Kunkle Barbara Scanlon, David Troiano, Nick Kreider, Chris Grapentine and Thomas Petiet.

The Guild has sought and received funding from several organizations, including the Victor Herbert Foundation and the ARPA fund, as well as the Guild’s own donors, whom it thanks.
